Last week came the news that Prairie Village is, apparently, one of the most exciting places in Kansas to live. This week, another organization is citing PV as one of the best cities for homeownership in the state.
Nerdwallet, a financially focused website that tries to provide information to help consumers make decisions, released its list of the best places in the great state on the great plains to buy a house. Though Prairie Village didn’t crack the top ten, it did make the top 20, coming in at 15 overall.
Nerdwallet’s methodology looked at housing availability, affordability and the overall growth of the area. According to their data, homeowner costs in Prairie Village as a percentage of total household income is around 23 percent. Prairie Village’s total home ownership rate is 79.5 percent, and the median monthly household income is just shy of $7,000.
Andover, a Wichita suburb, topped the list. From the Kansas City area, Leawood and Olathe made the top ten, and Shawnee came in at 17 overall.
