Aliens, do you believe in them? Would you want one as a neighbor? Here at ISoldMyHouse.com, we love to give our customers all the information required to make better housing decisions. Sometimes that information is a little bit more off-beat than our usual information about how to list on the MLS or selling a house by owner.
It turns out that five in ten Americans (52%) believe in aliens, with almost three in ten (29%) believing that those beings have actually visited Earth.
UFO and alien-spotting is an increasing trend amongst Americans, with the number of reports steeply rising from 3,395 in 2018 to 5,971 in 2019*. Which may not come as so much of a surprise when you hear that over half of Americans (56%) believe that the US government is actually hiding evidence that aliens exist**.
To help our customers find (or avoid!) potential alien hotspots, we took data from the National UFO Reporting Center and amalgamated it with our own data to work out the most affordable areas to live, should you be interested in spotting some aliens.
We took the places where you’re most likely to spot an alien and sorted them by their median housing price, and the top 10 were as follows:
- Myrtle Beach, SC – $167,958
- Columbus, OH – $174,109
- Philadelphia, PA – $187,772
- Houston, TX – $191,907
- Tucson, AZ – $215,965
- Albuquerque, NM – $216,090
- Dallas, TX – $226,145
- Orlando, FL – $260,915
- Phoenix, AZ – $269,175
- Mesa, AZ – $278,497
If you just so happen to be looking for a new house and would love to increase your chances of spotting extraterrestrial life, or if you have a phobia of aliens and want to list your house for sale and move to less of a hotspot, check our map below:

“Whether you’re scientifically-minded or not, the topic of aliens is one that fascinates a lot of people all over the world. It’s also a topic that excites a lot of people so I’m happy to be able to provide this sort of information for those who want to or have turned their interest in the extraterrestrial into a passion. Just make sure to name it after me if you find an alien!”
