Being affordable is a key part of what can make a city great. However, the one that's been named the most affordable in Missouri is much more dangerous than it looks so buyer beware.

First, the good news. According to 24/7 Wall St, the most affordable place in Missouri also happens to have been the hometown of Ike and Tina Turner at one point. It's Jennings, Missouri which does have a very lovely park.

The question isn't whether someone was injured or murdered in Jennings, Missouri over the weekend. The question is how many were murdered over the weekend is the sad question.

It's true that housing is rather inexpensive there including the median home prices being in the mid-$50,000's. Rentals are also not gonna cost you much, but the question is whether you're brave enough to call Jennings home. I'm not trying to be a party pooper about this big celebration of affordability. I just say be careful what why Jennings, Missouri is so affordable.
