What areas are good schools/hospitals but isn't like in a tech worker infused real estate bubble?

  • Pro TIP: stay local to a high employment area. NYC is great option. You may not have this remote job forever.

      But you can move when you're fired right? You can live in an area with super low cost of living and save more than you would living anywhere in the US

      This s terrible advice. NYC is the last place i would be if i had a remote job. In the US, i would choose a no income tax state like FL. If i need to be in NYC for a job interview, it's 3 hour flight away.

    Atlanta (live in the suburbs). Real estate is affordable and there are many great public schools that pushes out ivy leagues every year. Emory is a great healthcare system. There’s a tech scene so you can find jobs. Super diverse city with great food. Great airport.

    Do you have kids? If not, live in areas like Decatur and Midtown. Great for people in 20s and 30s.

    Charlotte is a good option

    Pick a city like Atlanta or Chicago that has jobs but is still pretty cheap to live in. That way you won’t have to move if you need a new job.

    Agree with this above. Move to an area that has jobs. Not always easy to move, especially if you have ties to the community and don’t get to pick when you lose this job.

    40 minutes away from NYC by train you can buy a house for 3-400k

      Only place you'll find houses that cheap are central nj and taxes will be sky high. 115k wont go far in ny or nj.
