Many of the U.S.’s most gay-friendly neighborhoods are in some of the country’s most expensive real estate markets. But there are also plenty of more affordable options for same-sex couples, according to real estate website Trulia.
Trulia identified zip codes with the heaviest concentrations of gay men and women by examining Census Bureau statistics. It then determined a neighborhood’s affordability by looking at the median price per square foot of homes listed in that particular zip code over the past year.
Even though the neighborhoods with the densest population of same-sex couples were among the nation’s most expensive, including San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood for male couples and Provincetown/Cape Cod, Mass. for same-sex female couples, Trulia found gay communities in affordable areas as well.
