Woodstock was recently named among the most affordable places to live in Georgia. Woodstock was ranked number six among places in Georgia with a population of more than 10,000 people and included cities as well as Census Designated Places. This ranking placed Woodstock as the second most affordable location in the metro Atlanta area, just behind number four ranked Canton.
The ranking, which was compiled by Movoto Real Estate and published on its blog, was based on the cost of food, utilities and other items, median home prices, unemployment rates and adjusted median income. Woodstock got its highest positive marks due to the low unemployment rate of 7.7 percent and food costs below the national average. Woodstock also scored relatively well in the median price of homes at $197,100, considerably less expensive than the next place on the list, Johns Creek, with a median home price of $336,000.
The full Top 10 list is –
- Warner Robins
- Canton & Perry (tie)
- Johns Creek
- Cusseta-Chattahoochee County
