Location, location, location
As any experienced realtor will tell you, location should be your main focus when deciding which property to purchase. Why stay in your old surroundings when your newly gained status deserves a fresh, new air? The following text will highlight the up-and-coming cities that are becoming more and more popular for the entrepreneurs.
The Georgia capital is attracting newcomers from everywhere and people are rushing to this part of the country like never before because of its so-called Southern charm, culture and commerce. If you look into what the city has to offer, it’s clear why: iconic locales like Alliance Theatre, the CNN Center, the largest indoor aquarium and Michelin star restaurants. But the fact that you can own a luxury condo in Atlanta for half the price you would pay for the same quality property in New York City for example, is what seals the deal.
If, on the other hand, you’re looking for “calm and patience” and close proximity to nature, Seattle is the right fit for you. With equally affordable properties, your dream home is surely at the grasp of your hands. As living in Seattle has so much to do with outside activities, hiking trail, sprawling parks, wineries and ski resorts are less than an hour from downtown. Seattle is ranked as #6 on the list of the best places to live based on quality of life.
San Jose, California
The innovative spirit of San Jose with 300 sunny days a year, its proximity to the ocean, the Sierra Nevada and the vineyards offers the perfect environment for building a home that would be passed down to younger generations. Your children will have no trouble finding jobs in its large tech campuses.
For those with a more exotic taste, the year-round tropical temperatures and miles of beaches, Honolulu is the destination of your dreams. Enjoy in the feeling of being on a permanent vacation and move one of the country’s happiest places. Sure it’s on the expensive side when it comes to living costs but you are at that point in your life where you can afford it.
No matter what your ultimate choice will be, give yourself another pat on the shoulder for achieving what so many other Americans strive for – the American Dream. All that’s left now is to sit back and pick the fruits of your labor.
