Bullhead City Called Arizona's Most Affordable Place To Live

A western Arizona city is one of the most affordable places to live in the state, according to third quarter data contained in the Cost of Living Index.

Bullhead City had an overall affordability index of 91% — which means it costs about 9% below the national average to live there. 

The city’s administrative analyst Sheila Betts says the prices bring people to the area. 

"The survey shows that our residents enjoy low cost gas prices, food, housing, compared to other areas that are like metropolitan areas that people are trying to get away from so that’s why they end up coming here," she said. 

The affordability index includes the cost of rent, groceries, fuel, prices of homes, utilities, and miscellaneous services.
