DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A national real estate search company says four of the top 10 most affordable U.S. cities to live in are in Ohio.

Trulia ranked Akron and Dayton as the two most affordable cities in its survey, based on a combination of high wages and low home prices.

Cleveland was seventh on the list, and Toledo was eighth.

Trulia analyzed the percentage of an average middle-class income spent on housing, commuting and utilities.

Home prices in those cities are below the national average, and more people can afford to make monthly mortgage payments depending on their income levels.

Others in the top 10 included Louisville, Kentucky; Kansas City, Missouri; Wichita, Kansas; Little Rock, Arkansas; Syracuse, New York, and St. Louis, Missouri.
