Go to New York, Dallas and Chicago. Just leave San Francisco alone. It's way too crowded and nobody can afford a house :)

Unpopular Opinion: Baltimore. Plenty of talent from the DC area, without the DC prices.

Why not virtual? I willl gladly work for sane ppl from anywhere. Have RV can drive up to nearest airport. Unlike the UK no culture here to clock in out of a bricks and mortar place.

Look into growing markets instead of overpriced metro areas where middle class can’t afford housing anymore. People and companies are leaving those areas for good. Charlotte, NC for example has a lot of opportunities in banking mergers.

Diversify by having offices in major metros like NYC or DC and growing markets like RTP (Raleigh) NC. I may be biased to my hometown though.. 😊

Go off the beaten path a bit. Charlotte, Austin, Salt Lake, all more affordable, reasonably located cities.

I would not say Austin is more affordable. Nor has it been able to keep up with all the growth and incoming population

NYC, Chicago, Dallas, LA would be the top 4
