Market Statistics/Performance, News No Comments »

In a recent special report,, the publisher of the Memphis Business Journal and 40 other business journals across the country, ranked Memphis as the ninth most affordable housing market of the 50 largest U.S. metropolitan areas.

  1. Oklahoma City (19.04%)
  2. San Antonio (19.91%)
  3. Birmingham (20.29%)
  4. Indianapolis (20.72%)
  5. Pittsburgh (21.22%)
