Why is it so cheap to live in Omaha? -NH Resident

I've heard it said before but now that I research here I see apartments and houses are half as much as they are for comparable properties in New England. Omaha seems like a decent sized city with a low unemployment rate. What is the deal Nebraskans?

I keep seeing this question in my sidebar and I just think it's nuts. We have lived in Florida, Michigan and Ohio, and we have never had such a hard time finding decent housing as we have here in Omaha. We are STILL living in an extended stay while trying to find something both decent and affordable! We've now doubled what we were paying in Ohio, and we are having a tough time finding a place in Omaha. We want a safe place and a fenced yard for our kids and our dog, 4 or 3 bedrooms... very difficult to find at present! Well, unless you can pay several thousand a month for rent...

Then why can I search for 30 seconds and find a dozen 3 bdrm houses for under $800. Is that weekly? Is it the wrong neighborhood? It just seems like a lot of prices are too good to be true...

You will need to sleep under your bed in case there is a drive by!

We have some decent prospects now but we had to raise what we are willing to pay up over $1300 to get something that feels safe.
