Redfin and LinkedIn reveal the top 5 metros for America’s software engineers
The West Coast is home to some of America’s most prominent tech hubs like San Francisco and Silicon Valley, which both serve as headquarters for industry leaders like Amazon, Google and Apple.
While these hubs tend to boast a plethora of available jobs for software engineers, Real estate brokerage company Redfin claims that sky-high housing costs make these metros relatively unaffordable for the average tech employee.
According to the company’s recent study, a typical home in San Francisco’s housing market sold for more than $1.4 million in July, which is out of reach for someone earning the Bay Area’s median income of $186,300.
