Gilbert, Arizona Ranked #1 in the Nation for Median Income

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Zion Realty

If you ask most people on the street what the biggest priority should be for our Country the overwhelming answer would be job creation and growth. Middle-class incomes have stagnated and there are a record number(over 93 million) of Americans not participating in the workforce. Inspite of the positive picture our policitians are attempting to paint the boots-on-the-ground know better. As a Nation we are still far from where we need to be economically speaking.

That being said, the great news about my area of Gilbert, Arizona is that we were just voted #1 in the Country for median income by Wallethub! Around the Nation, 150 cities were analyzed according to affordability, budget, livability, and local environment. Gilbert, Arizona took a first place ranking.

Hi Nicole.  This "recovery" has not been fueled by big jumps in employment.  Informative blog.

That is a great thing for Gilbert, definitely my favorite area in the East Valley, as there don't seem to be any "bad" areas.

Mark - A good median income means a stable local economy.

Sybil - I wasn't even aware until I read the article myself and I live here.

Claude - I hope anyone thinking of relocating here gets a hold of this article.

Nancy - The city council has been trying to shape us like Austin, TX for quite a while now. Apparently it's working. 

Conrad - Not nationwide unfortunately. It's still very localized. 

James - I've seen this town grow by leaps and bounds over the past 15 years. 

Roger - I love Gilbert and I'm hoping many more people find out just how great it is to live here.

Brian - There's a few pockets of "old" areas but not many "bad" areas.

Wow.  Interesting.  I never would have thought.  I need to look into Gilbert a little more.  My cousin just moved to Chandler.

Great minds and all... Nicole. I just posted about WalletHub naming Charlotte as one of the top 6 cities in economic growth. This kind of information helps people make decisions about moving and that only helps our businesses.
