Let's face it, the housing market has not been great for some time, but there are affordable places to live without breaking the bank.

Which Missouri Small Town is the Most Affordable?

Well, if you said Branson you get a gold sticker. See, shocking right? You would think that this would be one of the most expensive places to live but on average housing ranges from 145,000 and up according to Realtor.com.Maybe if you want a summer place or a place to get away you could afford it, but the lower-end houses are smaller but adorable.

Branson ranks the highest among all our towns in the Census Bureau’s “amusement, gambling, and recreation” industries, as the town has become a hub for tourism and live music.

Don't get me wrong, some houses cost thousands and even millions of dollars in that area, but there is still affordable housing that is non-stop busy with tourists all year.

I'm not sure I could live in Branson knowing that millions of people visit yearly, especially in the summer. I guess that's how people in big cities feel about tourism. I like my quiet, peaceful neighborhood. I'll take that every day of the week.
