4. Sioux Falls, SD

5. Fremont, CA

6. Chandler, AZ

7. Omaha, NE

8. Salt Lake City, UT

Heck, the fact that Arizona is on that list three times in the top ten is great for your state.

Chris - I know Gilbert has a huge commercial plaza being built right now that is supposed to bring in a few thousand jobs, and they finished a brand new Intel plant in Chandler last year. I'm not sure the reason for Scottsdale's high ranking.

Nicole, Wow, three cities in the top 10.  That is amazing. That should have an impact on the real estate markets as well.  Arizona ... here we come!

I love all the growth that is going on in our area! So great to see Gilbert ranked in the top 10 in another category! Such a wonderful place to settle into!

Kathleen - You would think. It's been pretty plateaued for the past six months or so. Here's hoping 2015 is a little busier. 

Tammy - We're lucky to have some major employers here. Boeing, Intel, Honeywell, Google, Apple, etc. We've got some heavy employers in the Phoenix area. 

Mark - More jobs means more relocations! Bring it on!

Hi Nicole - That is great news for the Gilbert housing market - jobs are the most fundamental factor in creating economic health for a community. You should certainly be seeing the effects of this.

Took me a second to think what it was about Gilbert in another post Nicole.  I believe it was ranked as a one of the least crime rates in US as well.   The reasons for living in Gilbert Arizona keep adding up in a big way,  and the person to see if looking to purchase a Gilbert home is Nicole Doty.

To be third out of the top 10 speaks volumes.  To have three of the top ten places in the State is simply priceless.

VB - VB always has his pulse on what going on around the Country! 

Mark - Yes, that was an article that came out a few months ago. I believe we were in the top 5 safest cities to live in the Country. 

James - Now lets hope I get a lot of calls about relocations!
