I haven’t had one of these in a while.
By “these” I mean a survey that once again points out the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St Paul are a great place to live and work.
This one comes from Realtor.com => Silicon Valley Is Over! Top 10 Cities Where Techies Can Actually Afford to Live and starts with:
“Back in his mid-20s, John Malone was right where he'd always dreamed he would be: working as a software engineer in San Francisco. Yet even with a full-time job, Malone found himself "totally broke. I lived in a three-bedroom house with six other guys."
Realizing he could never afford to buy (or even rent) his own place, Malone started searching for work back where he'd grown up in Minneapolis. He was pleasantly surprised to find plenty of tech jobs offering decent salaries—and (the clincher) affordable homes.”
This story is one we have seen repeated many, many times the past years of people moving to or back the region to find a good quality of life, good jobs and reasonably priced homes.
