People from around the country are moving to El Paso for affordable living.

CNBC ranked the Sun City among the top 10 “boomtown” cities where buyers can purchase a home on a $60,000 salary and under.

Other cities on the list include Houston, New Orleans, and Dallas. 

According to CNBC, in order to afford a home in El Paso, you only need to make in between $32,000 and $36,000 a year, with the median home price at around $158,000.
