My City: Atlanta vs. Denver (and More!) in This Week's Ultimate Dream Home Challenge

View as Map

Curbed has partnered with the FYI network for My City's Just Not That Into Me, a show matching intrepid city dwellers with their ideal piece of real estate. Tune in on FYI every Wednesday at 10pm ET for back-to-back episodes of the series, then visit Curbed for extra listings and real estate-hunting tips related to the episode. Thinking about breaking up with your city? Good luck!


On this week's episodes of FYI's original series, My City's Just Not That Into Me, a high-level executive named Nicole wants to leave Washington D.C. for a more laid-back community, while Jessica and Ryan want to get out of their tony Connecticut suburban city of Norwalk for a less expensive but thriving major metropolitan area. Using the My City Personality Quiz — which is like online dating, but for cities — Nicole explores Kansas City and Denver, while Jessica and Ryan visit Tampa and Atlanta. Which would you choose?


Denver's median price of homes sold is on the rise — it went from $280K in May to $290K in June. Of all the cities we explored this week, Kanas City has the cheapest median sold of right under $115K. it also has a relatively cheap median rent of $800. Atlanta's still a hot real estate market with a median sale price of $166K, though the market year-over-year is slowing down, making it a more neutral market. Looking for a more stable place to invest in? Put your money into Tampa, where home values have only gone up 5.2 percent over the past year. It'll have a slow return, but at least you aren't buying during a peak. The well-heeled suburban city of Norwalk in Connecticut has a high median for both renting and buying, $2,100/month and $363,500, which makes sense since it's a commuter city. Finally, Washington, D.C. is currently clocking in at just above $474K. Renting isn't cheap, either, so please have proper expectations if you're on a budget and trying to move to our nation's capital.
