You don't have to have deep pockets like Omaha native and resident Warren Buffett to afford a home in Nebraska's biggest city. Three-bedroom split-level homes in good condition go for less than $130,000, and a new two-story family home with half an acre of land can be had for about $250,000.

And the weather is not so bad either: Omaha is one of the sunniest cities on our list. --D.G.
