Metro Phoenix is a huge bubble waiting to pop. Look at all the people making 30-40K year driving 60-70,000 trucks, or even more expensive. Look at the sh00tings happening every day.

A 16 year old was sh0t in the face for not offering a Wendy's drive-thru customer barbecue sauce! You can tell me that pockets like Chandler and Gilbert are much better and that's probably true, but they will catch up. It's too bad this place is great just five years ago but the crime is just starting to spiral.. people used to come here for jobs and now they're coming here just to cause trouble.

I moved to a place i wanted to live. Grew up in the Midwest and said the stork made a huge mistake. East coast to humid. Everytime i went on vacation i was sad landing in Ohare. Now i land in Sky Harbor. Yes it is hot but it is close proximity to all the places i want to see including the ocean and mountains. However, Living here is nice period. It is clean even the highways are clean and decorated. So i can’t afford to live the way i want in California but a cheap flight or short drive. I can see great scenery outside my house so i would not relocated. Did that many years ago

Strategically speaking the Charlotte metro area or the Phoenix metro area (Chandler) would make sense. Both have lower cost of living and other employment options in case you need it.

They don't allow 100% remote workers to relocate. I know because I tried to relocate as an already 100% remote worker from a non-corporate city to another non-corporate city and they told me if I moved they would fire me. Apparently the only way they'll let you move is if you get a medical accommodation.

I would live in Portland, SF, Chicago, Minneapolis, LA, or any other democrat run city because they're so safe and attractive.

I looked into this and think that Charlotte is the obvious choice.

Lower cost of living with many other bank HQs (BoA, Truist) and satellite offices (5/3, US Bank, Citizens, TD, Ally, Regions, USAA, First Citizens, First Horizon, and growing JPM presence among others).

Relocation to persue a remote work job is not reason enough to move. Unless you have zero ties to the community, no ties to anything else, want a change of scenery, and the $$$ lines up. Then maybe.....

If you are permanent remote, it doesn’t matter where you live or work, other than potential tax consequences. Get the work done and it shouldn’t matter where in the world you are.
