Living in the comfy suburbs doesn't have to break the bank- at least not in central Indiana.  In a list of the top 10 most affordable suburbs in the U.S. released by real estate research blog Movoto, two central Indiana nooks made the cut- Greenwood ranked 5th and Fishers ranked 9th.
A third Indiana suburb, Clarksville (though technically considered a suburb of Louisville, KY) ranked 6th in the U.S.
The study considered these factors when compiling the top 10: Cost of living, food and utilities, housing affordability, property tax rate percentage, state income tax rate, and sales tax rate.
In describing the two central Indiana suburbs, Movoto praised Greenwood for being more affordable than its central Indiana counterpart on the list.  The city south of Indianapolis "has a lower overall cost of living at six points below the national average, and lower utility costs at five points below average," the study said.
Meanwhile in Fishers, it was the food and utility costs that pushed it to the top of the nation, with food falling eight points below the national average and utilities four points below.
Movoto surveyed 139 suburbs, which comprise the largest suburbs of the 50 largest cities in the country.  The list was as follows:
1) Midwest City, Okla
2) Moore, Okla
3) Cimarrow Hills, CO
4) Pearland, TX
5) Greenwood, IN
6) Clarksville, IN
7) Universal City, TX
8) Schertz, TX
9) Fishers, IN
10) Cibolo, TX
