A lot of considerations go into choosing where to live. Whether it’s job opportunities, outdoor recreation, culture and entertainment, or the political landscape, whether a city is affordable is also one of the biggest factors in deciding where to live. We’ve seen more and more people leave big cities and their high costs of living in exchange for more affordable cities that also often offer more space.

According to a recent survey, 9.3 million more consumers reported living paycheck to paycheck last year than in 2021, and of those, 8 million earned more than $100,000 a year.
