SmartAsset released their 2016 rankings of the best states for homeowners. Analyzing data for 50 states, SmartAsset looked at housing affordability, property taxes, and median listing price per square foot. For the second year in a row, Wyoming has been ranked as the number 1 state for homebuyers due to their “relatively low property tax and low average closing costs.”
