ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Working from home is great, and remote workers in Tree Town are living the good life.
A new study from Teamwork has named the southeastern Michigan city as the third best city in the United States for those working remotely.
Teamwork, a project management platform, looked at publically available data tracking cost of living, transportation, climate, cost of meals and salary.
The platform found that while the average cost of living is $1,718.85, Ann Arbor’s moderate monthly costs for internet, gym memberships and the cost of an inexpensive meal balanced things out.
Averages costs for things like a ticket to a movie, a three-course meal for two and the cost of a beer were $11, $60 and $4, respectively. Rent for a one-bedroom apartment near the city center, on average, costs $1,407.14 and the average local salary is $5,677.43.
Weather was also factored into a city’s ranking. Despite being in snowy Michigan, Tree Town only averages 137 rainy days a year and 2,681 hours of sunshine (around 112 days worth) per year.
Take a look at the top 10 best cities for remote work:
