Tallahassee's cost of living is 4 percent lower than the United States average. Housing is extremely affordable, at 16 percent less than the national average, but the city makes up for it with higher than average transportation and grocery costs. The median home price in Tallahassee is $145,900, compared with the national average of $170,100. Rent, on the other hand, tends to be more expensive than the national average, due in part to the transient nature of the student population.
