We have decided to tackle an important subject, why you should live in a community like Birmingham. This is not an overview of the various family friend activities you can participate in there are many to choose from instead we are going to give you the 50,000 foot view so buckle your seatbelts and put your tray in the upright position, it will get interesting real fast.

For the last few decades there has been a growing number of Americans moving to “the city” to find work and opportunity and for a time they did. But yes there is always a “but” during the last ten (10) years or so the number of people moving into the cities has been on decline. There are few reasons why living in a large metropolitan area may not be in your best interest. The number of high paying jobs has been dropping rapidly and with telecommuting there is no real need to be “in the office” unless you are dealing with clients face to face otherwise everything can be done remotely.

What compounds the problem is when there is a lack of high paying jobs individuals will not have enough money leftover after payday to spend in the local economy so there are fewer jobs and economic prosperity. These financial woes combined with high infrastructure costs and crime rates and it becomes quite clear why “the big city ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.”

Your children can go to a school where their biggest worry is whether they passed the algebra exam and you can have a high quality of life. Since Birmingham has well established roots and hard working families the city will be more resilient to economic changes than the transient workforce found in the large cities. As you can see there are many reasons why you and your family should living in Birmingham, check it out and you will be amazed.
