A Small Town Does Not Always Mean a Small Mortgage
LendingTree wanted to know whether a move to an idyllic small town in America — you know, picket fences, oak-lined streets — also meant a move to a smaller mortgage. They quickly found that would not be the case. In fact, some small towns are far more expensive than you would think. To come up with their findings, Lending Tree pored over data collected by the US Census Bureau to identify the small US towns — with populations ranging from 10,000 to 50,000 — with the most expensive median home values. Generally, the priciest towns were vacation spots frequented by the affluent, like Breckenridge, Colorado and Jackson, Wyoming.
However, some expensive towns had homes with high sticker prices due to simple lack of housing supply, like in Williston, ND. Take a look at how pricey housing can get in our small towns. In order, here are the 20 most expensive small towns to buy a house in the United States.
