Daydreaming is usually reserved for the impossible—such as musing about what it would be like to live in a giant penthouse in New York City when even a tiny studio is out of your budget, or to quit your job and travel the world without having to worry about a thing. But sometimes the things we don't often think about as daydreams can become our biggest fantasies. For example, in researching this post, I realized that I could rent a 4-bedroom home with 2 and a half bathrooms for less than the cost of most studios in Brooklyn... if I just moved to Toledo, Ohio—the least expensive city for renters in America, according to CBS News.
A major move like that is definitely not in my future for a lot of reasons, but a girl can dream about wildly inexpensive housing, right? Whether you're looking for a home in an ultra-affordable neighborhood or you just want to daydream with me about all the money you'd save, here are five totally cute homes available right now in Toledo.
