Hopefully, you’ve settled nicely into your new life in OKC – found a nice place to settle in. But just in case you haven’t found that one place to call home sweet home just yet, we’re here to give you a little insight into OKC’s housing market.

In a word, it’s affordable. You’ll find an impressive variety of housing at some of the nation’s best rates without sacrificing quality. In fact, the average Oklahoma City home price in the second quarter of 2012 is $247,252 (according to the Oklahoma Association of Realtors). Single-family home prices start around $60,000 and go up, with condominiums and townhomes ranging from $65,000 to $300,000. And with Oklahoma City ranked among the cities with the best real estate appreciation potential (according to Forbes), if you decide to buy, you’ll be making a wise investment. And you’re certain to find something to fit your style -- no matter what your tastes, Oklahoma City has it all: new homes in suburban communities, urban lofts in the heart of downtown, the simple life of a smaller community with a short commute, recent developments with lots of community amenities. The choices for where you call home are seemingly endless. And the span of architectural styles provides something for every design taste, from arts-and-crafts bungalows to Tudor-style cottages, mid-century modern to traditional ranch homes, or European-inspired homes.

Maybe buying a home isn’t exactly your thing. Not to worry – OKC also has hundreds of rental apartments ranging from brand new luxury complexes to modest, garden-style apartments with the average rental price ranging from $600 to $1,500. In fact, the average 950-square-foot apartment in Oklahoma City costs $746 per month, compared to $1,238 in Chicago, or even higher in other cities.

No matter what you’re looking for, we’re certain you’ll find it here in OKC.

An important aspect of living in Oklahoma City is being storm or tornado safe. If you are in need of a storm shelter, safe room, or tornando shelter in okc, may I recommend http://www.oklahomashelters.net . They do a bang up job at very affordable rates!
