The Huntsville Alabama Metro Ranks Number Two For Tech Jobs / Cost Of Living


Huntsville, Alabama continues to amaze.  The Huntsville area continually ranks as one of the top metros in the United States.  And now, Huntsville can add another great thing about the metro.  The website NerdWallet analyzed 381 metro areas to identify the regions that balance opportunity for tech workers with cost of living – and Huntsville came in at #2.  Only the San Jose, CA area was better.  So, what makes Huntsville so attractive?  The key takeaways are:

For the Huntsville Metro, the region has just over 63 tech-related employees per 1,000 jobs.  However, what vaults it even higher in their analysis is its affordability.  Huntsville has by far the lowest median gross rent in the top 10 metros at $785 a month.  That’s No. 233 in their analysis of 381 places.  Not only the Huntsville area has a lot of tech jobs for the geeks and nerds, the Huntsville Metro is extremely affordable!  If you lived in Silicon Valley, rents would be moon high and houses sell for millions.  You can find a decent house or a good apartment for a low price!  The cost of living in the Huntsville Metro is low.  And that is great!

Huntsville continues to attract tech and other good paying jobs, including that Toyota-Mazda plant.  If you live in the high cost Silicon Valley / San Francisco Metro, and are wanting to have a good tech job with a low-cost of living, consider Huntsville!
