Welcome to today's daily mortgage comparison! Giving you mortgage comparisons from two of the biggest cities in the USA!

Now here we have the USA, city of Jacksonville!,
Jacksonville is the largest city in the U.S. state of Florida in terms of both population and land area, and the largest city by area in the continental United States. It is the county seat of Duval County, with which the city government consolidated in 1968. The consolidation gave Jacksonville its great size and placed most of its metropolitan population within the city limits; with a population of 821,784, is the most populous city proper in Florida and the eleventh most populous in the United States. Jacksonville is the principal city in the Greater Jacksonville Metropolitan Area, a region with a population of more than 1,313,228.

And here we have the USA, the city of Indianapolis!
Indianapolis is the capital of the U.S. state of Indiana, and the county seat of Marion County, Indiana. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city's population is 829,718.

  6. This surprised me, Indy is an older larger city i assumed the population density that happens with northern towns would have their house prices higher then Jacksonville.

  15. Based on those two images, Jacksonville does look fantastic. America is such a huge place to me, coming from England we do not have many cities with big tall buildings like (seemingly) every major city in America has!
