5 cities where working class families can still find affordable homes

Sep 26 2016

Homebuyers in cities across the U.S. cite affordability as their biggest concern, notes a study from Redfin. But, there’s some good news for working-class homebuyers.

“Across 40 large U.S. cities, 55 percent of homes for sale last month were affordable for a working-class household and still between two and four bedrooms in size. Homes of this size matter because affording a home that’s big enough to comfortably fit a family is more difficult than affording a studio or a one-bedroom condo,” says Redfin.

What Is Working Class?

Working class is a term used to describe workers employed in trade occupations. Historically, these workers wore uniforms, often blue, hence the name blue collar.
