NerdWallet, a consumer advocacy website, recently conducted a study to find the best places for homeownership in Kansas – and McPherson made the list.
As renting becomes less affordable, NerdWallet wanted to give potential homebuyers a look at the current housing market. NerdWallet based its rankings on the following criteria:
Selected monthly homeowner costs
Monthly household income
NerdWallet ranked McPherson as the 16th best place in Kansas for homeownership. The area has a homeownership rate of 73.8%, and median monthly homeowner costs are $1,106 - only 24.2% of the median household income.
Other cities that made the list include Prairie Village and Shawnee.
