Increasingly, you can find the same east coast job opportunities in places like Arizona, Utah and Texas, with a cost of living that is significantly lower. Austin and Seattle are two really up-and-coming cities, especially when it comes to the tech sector. It's not really surprisingly that people are flocking to these states. Why pay $2,000 a month for a closet when that gets you a nice house out west?
