These Are The 50 Best American Cities To Work-From-Home

Is your city on the list?

A new list of the 50 best places to work from home in America has just been published — and according to the list, big cities like LA and New York are so last year.

As we reach the near-year anniversary of working from their homes, home offices, kitchen tables, and more, the long-term work from home arrangement has led many workers to leave the cities they once called home for greener, more rural, and cheaper pastures — or to move to the once-unaffordable cities that were being depopulated rapidly by the mass exodus of professionals. No matter where you moved in 2020 or so far in 2021, the moves that were made last year were ones that were previously inconceivable and not at all predicted. Regardless, there are places that mark some of the best places to work from home, and PCMag decided to round up the 21 best cities to work from home in. Is your city, or the city you just moved to, on the list?

According to PCMag, they made the list based on a series of weighted measurements. On the list of the 50 best American cities to work from home, the company only included cities with a median income below $500,000. Half of the scoring process was weighted on affordability, with 30% going towards the median home value and 20% for the minimum price for broadband internet.

The other half of the scoring process is so-called “livability,” which they based on a series of weighted percentages of median home size, the percentage of home-based workers in the cities therein, and the actual beauty of the town itself. Other important, but less important, measurements for the company were the presence of coffee shops, local restaurants (that are not chains or franchises), the percentage of art and education workers, and health care employees.

The company also included a list of Canadian cities and municipalities, but unless you are interested in leaving the country, (which, fair), we didn’t include them in this coverage.
