Recently Money magazine released its top “10 Best Big Cities To Live In Right Now” and Columbus, Ohio made the list!

Money looked at cities with populations of 300k or more. They didn’t include cities with more than double the national crime risk, lack of ethnic diversity, or cities with less than 85% of the state’s median household income.

In the methodology, economic health, diversity, public school performance, local amenities, housing, and cost of living were factors.

Columbus made the list at number ten. It is one of the fastest growing cities in the mid-west and the country as a whole.

The population of Columbus has grown by nearly 11% over the past 8 years. The same period saw 14% job growth. Job growth is predicted to grow by 5.7%.

Home values in Columbus are also predicted to grow. Zillow is forecasting a 6.6% increase in Columbus Ohio home values over the next year. With a median listing price of $170k-$180k, Columbus home prices are generally lower than the national median listing price of $275k.

As Columbus continues to grow and be recognized as one of the best cities in the U.S. job opportunities and home values will likely continue to grow. So, it makes sense that many people are choosing to move to Columbus, Ohio.
