Great choice for your next Move

5.0 based on 72 reviews

Many New Yorkers end up moving to Detroit because it offers a much more affordable cost of living, but there are several other reasons why people end up heading to The Motor City. For entrepreneurs, there’s a thriving startup community to benefit from. Compared to NY, you can also get a lot more “bang for your buck” in terms of housing.

Detroit is also more community-focused than NYC, where many people focus on their lives and careers. It’s also an excellent city for those interested in culture, arts, and architecture. The Motor City is also known for its rich musical history since it’s the birthplace of Motown Records. Whether you’re starting a family or a new career path, Detroit has a lot to offer.
