We love SmartAsset. They do studies and make very complex findings easy to read and understand.

A new study from SmartAsset ranks the most affordable places to live in North Carolina. The sixth annual study weighed factors, including taxes, homeowners’ insurance, and home costs relative to the local median income. Places, where homeownership costs were lowest relative to the median income in each location, were considered the most affordable.

Check out the list below for additional detail on how the top places in North Carolina ranked:
