The United States is a very expensive neighborhood to live in. Why do you think there are so many homeless people? Real estate is hard to get when you are throwing every paycheck to bills and rent. You are basically saying, hello paycheck and goodbye paycheck. But, for some, it’s worth it because they have jobs to support their living arrangements. Who cares about money when you get to say I live in a beautiful place that eats up all that green dough. If you live in one of these cities, please teach us your ways of working. Here are the top richest cities in the United States.
Lexington Park, California
Being the wealthiest metro area, Lexington Park households earn around $78,195 per year. Most of these houses are occupied by a large population of college-educated residents. Around 26% percent have a bachelor’s degree.
In Bellevue, Washington the household income estimates to be around $80,000. With all the tech companies building up in Seattle, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft, and Google, it’s not surprising Bellevue is up here.
Thousand Oaks, California
Tied with Bellevue, Washington with household earnings of $80,000 per year. Thousand Oaks takes the number 8 position because of its home prices coming up to over $560,000. Those are some expensive homes.
Urban Honolulu, Hawaii
The most tropical and also one of the richest places to live in a household earning of $80,513 per year. I guess in Hawaii is more money place then a tropical place.
Heading up north for the sixth position of the richest list. Anchorage, Alaska comes in at a household earning of $82,203. They get their money from the transportation of goods. Key to making money, make it difficult for things to travel, and the money will come to you.
Cambridge & Boston, Massachusetts
Home to the most prestigious schools in the country, it’s not a surprise Cambridge and Boston are number five on our list. These two cities rack up a household total of $82,380 every year. Our next plan is to start working at Harvard. Anyone looking for a professor to teach a student how to properly binge watch a Netflix series?
Connecticut, not a place you would think would be high on the list or even on the list at all. But, with wealthy professionals making the trek from New York, you will find the price tag to move up. Households in Stamford, Connecticut earn up to $90,123 a year.
With all of the government, legal, and professional jobs located in D.C. it’s not shocking to find this city at number 3. D.C. finds it’s household income at over $95,000. That’s a lot of cash for politics.
San Francisco, California
Not only the second richest city in the US, but also the most expensive place to live. San Francisco households earn around $96,677 a year. Now that income can get you close to three houses in Texas with money to spare. In San Francisco, the high cost of living makes it hard to pay off all the household bills.
San Jose, California
We really don’t need to say much for San Jose. The city that built up some of the largest tech companies that are looked up as Gods today, like Apple, Intel, Adobe Systems, and even NASA. Householders income are up to $110,040. Hey Nasa! Can you give me a job? I would love to have that amount of cash in my pocket.
