Charleston, S.C., jumped to first place in SmartAsset’s 2017 study of the most undervalued cities in America. Two newcomers made the list this year: Fort Collins, Colo., and Augusta, Ga. In fact, smaller cities dominate the top 10; Philadelphia is one of the only large metros on the list. The rankings were created by comparing quality-of-life factors and home prices to determine which cities offer the most bang for the buck. Not surprisingly, Boston; New York; San Francisco; San Jose, Calif.; and Washington, D.C., tend to be the most overvalued.
