“Put your drinks up for Nebraska,” sings Lady Gaga on her song Yoü and I. If you’ve ever been there, you’ll know there’s more to America’s heartland than corn, hills, and the occasional farmhouse.

Omaha has a great music scene, is one of the fastest-growing cities in the country, and has family-friendly suburbs as welcoming as any in the Midwest. Home to five Fortune 500 companies and four Fortune 1000 companies representing the railroad, food packaging, insurance, and construction industries, Omaha has a vigorous economy and is home to Warren Buffett, no less. Newsweek also listed Omaha as one of the top 10 high-tech “havens” in the nation.

Despite this, Omaha is not an especially expensive place to live. The median value of the city’s homes is currently $144,500, lower than an equivalent city such as Saint Louis. Interest rates for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage in the area range, according to Zillow, from 4.55 percent to 4.86 percent. This results in monthly payments on an average Omaha property ranging from $586 to $603.

Whether you’re looking for a distinctive urban neighborhood like the historic Morton Meadows in midtown Omaha or a pleasant suburb like Armbrust Acres with its access to Lake Zorinsky, Omaha’s housing market has plenty of choices. Downtown Omaha has many loft units and apartment buildings, as well as proximity to the boutique shops of the Old Market Historic District.

Northwest Omaha comprises suburbs like Bennington, Irvington, and Briggs, with large, affordable homes perfect for raising a family. The median sales value of Bennington homes is $235,500 and is currently increasing due to the neighborhood’s popularity. On a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage for an average Bennington property, expect to make monthly payments ranging from $941 to $969. Interest rates in the area currently stand between 4.38 percent and 4.69 percent, according to a Zillow sample.

Like any city, Omaha has rough areas. There are certainly deprived neighborhoods in the north of the city. If safety is a prime concern, stick to suburbs like Harvey Oaks to the west and Millard to the southwest of downtown Omaha. These suburbs have been popular since the 90s and are great for families. Looking for something out of town? Across the Missouri River, Council Bluffs is a small community surrounded by interesting geography with a current median home value lower than Omaha ($110,000).

Let’s hear it one more time: “Put your drinks up for Nebraska!”
