Daily Real Estate News  |  December 24, 2008  |   Forbes Calls These Cities a Bore
There are some big cities in the United States that nobody ever talks about. Forbes magazine says it’s because they are boring.

We won’t make that judgment. But Forbes says that these are cities that many had never heard of until now.

Many of these cities grew quickly because of the housing boom and lie just beyond more established locales. Now that the boom is over, these cities are getting noticed because of high foreclosure rates.

Here’s Forbes’ list of the most boringor ignoredcities and their populations.
  • Chula Vista, Calif. Population: 217,478
  • Hialeah, Fla.: 212,217
  • Mesa, Ariz.: 452,933
  • North Las Vegas, Nev.: 212,114
  • Chandler, Ariz.: 246,399
  • Santa Ana, Calif.: 339,555
  • Bakersfield, Calif.: 315,837
  • Aurora, Colo.: 311,794
  • Gilbert, Ariz.: 207,550
  • Henderson, Nev.: 249,386
