Top 6 Cities To Move To In 2016
6. Houston, Texas
Houston has a booming technology sector. It doesn’t have the glamour of Silicon Valley, but there are plenty of jobs. If you have the qualifications, there’s no reason why you can’t find a great starting salary to begin your new life. Not to mention the cost of housing is very affordable right now. You can find other reasons in this article here.
5. Omaha, Nebraska
This small city comes with a tiny 4.7% unemployment rate. Median incomes are high and it comes with plenty of higher education facilities to enhance your career. It’s also one of the healthiest cities in America to live in, with one of the highest number of physicians per 100,000 residents. Despite its small size, there’s plenty to do if you want to make this city your home.
4. Boulder, Colorado
This beautiful city in the Rocky Mountains is just a few miles outside Denver. But this is the place for the nature lovers among us. With world-class skiing opportunities and plenty of hiking routes, this small city has a huge number of things to do. The population consists mainly of people under 40, so the young and healthy can make a great home here.
3. Boise, Idaho
If you want lower taxes and an economy that’s stable, Boise is the place for you. The crime rate has dropped every year for the past 12 years and it can count on over 200 sunny days per year. You can enjoy the activities of Boulder for a tiny percentage of the cost.
2. San Francisco, California
San Francisco is crowded and is home to over 7 million people in the Bay Area. But it comes with fantastic public transportation links, lots of museums, and two pro sports teams to support. You’ll find the weather temperate and plenty to do both inside and outside the city. It’s an expensive place to stay, but incomes are high, so if you can find a job here you know you’ve made it.
1. Charlotte, North Carolina
Charlotte is on the east coast of America and is better known as the home to a range of corporations, including Family Dollar and Bank of America. Despite its corporate background, the easiest way to define Charlotte would be as a ‘sleepy city’. You’ll enjoy a range of financial benefits by moving in here. First of all, there’s a low property tax rate, low utility bill rate, and the average home comes in at under $200,000. The growth rate has been exceptional, and it’s no surprise.
Moving to any new city is a big step. Make sure you have a job before you decide to initiate any move. We also recommend visiting the city of your choice before committing to a full-time move. It will help you get a sense of where you’re going and whether your needs can be met.
