2011 Ten Places To Buy A Home
Walletpop’s Top 10 List of the Best Places to Buy a Home in 2011 has put Warner Robins back on the map as one of the best housing markets in the country. This mostly unscientific and partially biased list is based on a grab-bag of lifestyle priorities. Among others, Warner Robins ranked as one of the 10 best cities to buy a home in 2011. With a median home price of $124,900, Warner Robins was described a Best Military Town For The Buck. “Located midway between Atlanta and Savannah, Warner Robins’ housing affordability is the big draw. The median price of a home is $110,000, while the median family income is about $63,000. That leaves some extra dough to hit the local aviation museum, motor speedway and golf club. The city’s main employer is the military (home of Robins Air Force Base), bringing engineers and employees from around the globe, so the population is eclectic. The city fared well during the recession.” Click Here to view to original article at NBCnews.com.
