No. 6: San Diego

Breakeven horizon: 3.4 years

Zillow Rent Index:  2.9%

Homes sold at a loss: 34.86%

San Diego, famed for its mild climate and 70 miles of beaches, suffered a substantial housing recession, with a lot of foreclosures. "If you want to move into housing, it looks more affordable now than it has in the past," says Humphries. Zillow's Home Value Index  for San Diego, at $404,100, is up 11 percent from a year ago, while the rent index has risen 2.9 percent. The eighth-largest city in the U.S. is home to the nation's largest percentage of homeless veterans, according to a report from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
