We are mobile people. The U.S. Census reports that one in six Americans move each year. Finding the right home comes down to personal preferences, but it’s always a good idea to do some research on the area you’re considering. Look at weather, tax rates, population figures, median wages and real estate prices.
When studying those areas, some of the most popular cities to move to in the U.S. include Austin, Texas; Omaha, Nebraska; Boulder, Colorado; Boise, Idaho; San Francisco, California; Charlotte, North Carolina; Kansas City, Missouri; Portland, Oregon; San Diego, California; and Raleigh, North Carolina.
These areas have better unemployment rates and higher incomes. Some have great weather and good food. The cost of living is low in locations like Kansas City, Missouri and most of these cities are college towns, which raises the median income and a variety of entertainment options.
When looking for your next home, make a list of what’s important to you and do your research. You’ll be glad you took the time.
