What is The Most Expensive Cities To Live In Across The US?

Are you planning to move to the US for any reason? Could be a better job, for a business opportunity or tourism. The average person, who is relocating, would be looking for a place whose standard of living is not through the roof.  A place where one can sink their roots and make a home. Below are some of the more pricey areas to live in the US. Places you may want to steer clear of if you are financially challenged or where you may just settle down if money is not an issue.

New York City

This is one of the most expensive places to live in the US. The cost of living is 120% above any other in the United States. On average, a house would cost slightly above $500,000 with places like Manhattan going for about $1,000,000.

That is way above average the US’ cost of housing, which is at about $100,000. The city has a large population, of about 8 million people, and a good number of expatriates.

Washington D.C.

This state plays host to the ‘house on the hill’ also dubbed the world’s most powerful seat. DC is also the center of operation for governments and federal agencies. It is a hub for many private sector companies boasting of a high employment rate. To get an average home in the city, you need something in the neighborhood of $500,000, and the average household income is about $70,000. To live a comfortable life, you will need an income of about $90,000.

San Diego, California

Being home to many corporations and firms including government agencies, San Diego stands out as one of the pricey states to move to in America. With a population of about 1.3 million, the city’s cost of living is over 30% higher than any other. The average household income is to the tune of $60,000 with the average cost for a home being about $500,000, a figure that is slightly higher compared to places like Los Angeles. The city is home to many luxurious facilities making it very appropriate for those who have some money to spend.

Stamford, Connecticut

Its proximity to New York City has made it home to the wealthy commuters. In fact, it is renowned for its high number of millionaires. Most of those who work in New York spend their money in Connecticut, and of course, this will tell you why the commuter rates are slightly higher than in any other state. The average household income is about $80,000 with an average home cost of above $500, 000. The cost of living is close to 50% above the US average.

It has been said that ‘money talks’. And so it is because to settle in any of these locations, that decision will depend entirely on the weight of your bank account. So, before you move, it is essential to be aware of what life-style you can or cannot afford. Do not move on a whim, make the right decision.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!
★★★★★

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
