According to Wall St. 24/7's findings, the median price of a home for sale in Macomb costs a measly $69,900 nearly $250K cheaper than the state average.

What you save in price means you're actually getting a tinier crib too. The average size of a place for sale in Macomb is about 400 square feet smaller than the average for the rest of the state.

That's just one place I found really cheap that's larger than the average home for sale in Macomb.

Would you move to a different city in Illinois if you knew you could buy a home there for cheap?
