“We live in challenging times. Unemployment remains high, and the U.S. lead in technology and science is slipping as many foreign countries gain ground. But some U.S. cities, though slowed by the Great Recession, still thrive by lifting good old American innovation to new levels. And that will help put more Americans back to work and keep our international edge,” says the staff at Kiplinger who recently named the top 10 best cities for the next ten years.
With news of Austin being in the top spot, broker Krisstina Wise of The Goodlife Team said, “Austin is the place to be. First of all, unemployment in Austin is 6.8% compared to 9.8% nationally. Austin has been recognized on many top 10 lists including very recently: #1 of top 10 best cities for the next decade, #1 state for business, [and] Williamson Country [is] one of the fast growing counties in the US. And, Austin is simply a great place to live–a good life/work balance focused on health and family while being socially liberal in nature. Austinites embrace & inspire entrepreneurialism and supports local business– while housing, relative to the superior lifestyle, is very affordable. Austin is definitely the place to be for the next decade.”
