DECATUR — Decatur is ranked No. 1 on a list of Illinois cities with the most affordable homes

The real estate website homearea.com evaluated the 19 Illinois cities with populations greater than 60,000 on the affordability of their housing stock. The rankings are determined using the most recent Census data on home prices and household incomes for each respective city. 

Decatur took the top spot, followed by Rockford, Springfield, Bolingbrook and Bloomington.

Decatur's median home price is $81,800, the survey said. 

In July, the personal finance website NerdWallet named Decatur the metropolitan area with the nation's most affordable housing after an analysis of home costs and income in the city.

The Chicago Tribune contributed to this report.
