Recently, Miami has pinged the radars of top tech and finance players moving to the city. In addition to a hot finance sector, several Silicon Valley leaders have left California in favor of Florida's lower commercial costs and lack of state income tax. While Miami is no longer a destination only for tourists, hospitality is still strong. The University of Central Florida predicts that leisure and hospitality services are still expected to have the strongest job growth over the next three years, with an average of 4.8%.
Orlando is establishing itself as the hub of central Florida and is poised to keep growing. It is home to a number of medical systems and hospitals and considered as a city with a large hub for medical professionals and support staff. This city's growth rate from 2010-2020 is almost 24%.
Considered as the 15th largest population growth in the United States over the last decade, Jacksonville's housing costs are 11% less than the national average and a whopping 38% lower than Miami. Not far away from Atlanta, this is one of the biggest economic and cultural hubs in the South, and many people are taking advantage of the temperate climate while working remotely. Jacksonville and the surroundings are quickly becoming a haven for folks wanting to own their own homes in a place that has a laid-back, small-city feel.
