Best Places To Live In GA and SC?

A lot of factors are in play when deciding where to live...especially HOW MUCH IT COSTS.

Well, UnitedStatesZipCodes.org has crunched the numbers from the Census Bureau of the latest estimates from the American Community Survey data to estimate the price to rent ratio. Here are the ZIPs in Georgia with the lowest price to rent ratio below, and the highest price to rent ratio ZIPs. Only ZIP codes with a low margin of error are included.

Now, to understand what that means:

The price to rent ratio is the median home value divided by the median annual rent. At its most basic level, the ratio is a benchmark for understanding whether it is better to rent or buy in an area. When home prices rise significantly faster than the local rents, the ratio will rise - indicating a possible housing bubble where it may be better to rent. Anything under 15 indicates that it is likely more affordable to buy, and areas over 20 are likely better to rent.
