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.ย  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 USโ€™ 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 โ€˜house on the hillโ€™ also dubbed the worldโ€™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 cityโ€™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 โ€˜money talksโ€™. 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.

Satisfied Customers

“The plan was to ship my car from California to Utah. I went through nearly 20 quotes after using an auto shipping site which linked to a bunch of brokers. Finally, I found A1 Auto Transport, a company with its own trucks with great reviews. I was sold. Joe was very competent, gave off the impression heโ€™d done this a million times, and it really showed throughout the transport. He listened to my request carefully, offered me several options, stayed in touch during the transport, and made sure I was happy with everything. Overall, a great company which I would definitely recommend to others!”

“A1 Auto is kind of like your favourite mom and pop pizza parlour, the one you canโ€™t get enough of despite all the new, expensive avant-garde pizza shops that have mushroomed conspicuously across the entire neighbourhood and seem to have taken over the whole world...but not you. Because you value quality and genuine customer service, and know this business understands and works doubly hard to give you your moneyโ€™s worth. Iโ€™ve been using A1 Auto Transport whenever I left California for business: they may not be the cheapest car transporters around, but the sheer professionalism, dedication, and heart they put into their work is just amazing and worth my every dime. Iโ€™m probably one of the most sceptical people you would ever meet. Iโ€™m rarely convinced when bombarded with dubious, self-congratulating ads of companies that look like theyโ€™ve spent tons of money on marketing materials just to lure your average guy in. A1 Auto Transport is the complete opposite of these companies. My car always arrived promptly on schedule, never with a hint of scratch or dirt or damage, and they keep me updated every step of the process. When youโ€™ve found a company whose genuine care for their customers comes naturally, you stand by them no matter what. Itโ€™s the most logical thing to do.”

“Not too long ago, Iโ€™ve shipped a couple cars to California from Maine, and choosing A1 Auto Transport paid off from beginning to end. Of course, I first got a bunch of quotes from different companies. I wanted to make an educated decision, and this led me to A1, having some of the best quotes and reputation of the bunch. Their customer service was impeccable, and Joeโ€™s knowledge of the job showed even through the initial conversations I had with him over the phone. I could reach him at any time during the day. My schedule is a bit troublesome, so I called him at 7 am and 10 pm, yet he still answered in the same polite and professional manner. My cars arrived 2 days earlier. Considering there were 6 others on the truck he picked them up with, thatโ€™s really something. There was no damage done to them during transport, though being summer, I guess pebbles and theft are the only concerns in such cases. Thank you Joe for an awesome, stress free experience!”

“Most of the time people take the time to write a complaint letter. I am very happy with your service so far so I thought I would write and tell you. In today's world where mediocre service is the norm your company has proved your commitment to customer service is far above that of your competitors. I have not received my car yet but I felt compelled to write this email and commend A-1 Autotransport for the job well done thus far. Here are some points I would like to make. Your dispatcher Marie Ferguson upgraded my cars transportation, at no extra cost, to an enclosed transporter. My car is a rare SS Camaro Convertible with only 4,000 miles and is perfect in every way. I can't tell you how much I appreciate her concern for my cars safety. When the seller of the car was a little on the uncooperative side your agents offered to pick the car up where it was at the sellers residence. Again at no extra cost to me. The seller of the car called me after the car was picked up and mentioned how professional the driver was and how he moved cars off the transporter to put my car in the best location for it's long ride to Oregon. When I heard that I felt reassured I had chosen the right company to move my car. The system you have to track the progress is really fun. It took me a little while to figure it out but I had a blast watching the progress. Your driver didn't waste any time. The car was picked up in Ft Lauderdale Florida on Tuesday evening and was in Watsonville California Saturday afternoon. Great Job! I thought I might hear from you Sunday to arrange pick up of my car, most likely I hear from you Monday morning. Thank you again for all you folks have done for me. I would be happy to recommend your service to anyone who asks. Best Regards, Brian Hewgill”

“I had a great time transporting my car to California thanks A1 Auto Transport. Joeโ€™s quote was reasonable and his reasoning and explanations were spot on. He couldnโ€™t make it to the pickup, but he did call to make sure things were ok. The driver inspected my car, and I appreciated his professionalism. While it was on its way, Joe regularly sent me updates on its location through text. He estimated it would arrive in 5-6 days, and it was so. I was also given the contact information of my driver, so I could call both him and Joe if I ever felt the need to. My car got to Sacramento, California on the 5th day, and it was great to see it was well. There wasnโ€™t any damage done to it during transit. This fact, Joeโ€™s updates, and the fact that they met their deadline makes me recommend A1 Auto Transport as one of the best auto transport companies out there. Itโ€™s the 3rd company Iโ€™ve used to move a vehicle, and it will likely also be the 4th.”
