Cities with the Fastest Job Growth
Via an article published August 16, 2016 in Bloomberg.com, an economist, Jed Kolko, “who specializes in U.S. cities and the future of work, points out that mid-sized cities, such as Tucson, Arizona and Seattle, Washington, continue to see fast job growth, but the San Francisco Bay area has fallen out of the top 10.” Tucson ranks number 3 overall on the list, beating out Austin, TX and Seattle, WA.
You can see the Bloomberg article of The Cities With the Fastest Job Growth, and let me know if I can assist you in finding a home in Tucson, so you can get in on this amazing opportunity. I specialize in the downtown area but I can certainly help you find a home anywhere in town, central, northwest, east, and south sides.”Better job security is fueling real estate demand in the south, and a corresponding pick-up in home-builder sentiment. This new construction boom in Tucson has already begun, especially with the revitalization and expansion of Tucson’s booming downtown.”
To give you an idea of the expected job growth in Tucson I was recently at a Downtown Growth and Development seminar (October 2016) and theses were the reported statistics relating to jobs coming to Tucson and below this chart of innovative companies who are or will be headquartered in Tucson.
