Is there a better feeling than payroll being processed directly into your bank account every other Friday? Even if you deposit your check at the bank, getting paid for the hard work you put in at your occupation is extremely rewarding.

In some markets throughout the United States, the feeling of getting paid might feel a bit sweeter. The reason being is that there are cities where your dollar will just go further.

If you live in Detroit, for instance, your cost of living will be much less expensive than if you live in New York.

Mortgage or rent is the biggest expenditure for people across all U.S. cities, according to figures from the federal government.

Fortunately many of our residents at The Connor Group can make their money work harder. 8 out of our 11 markets are represented on Glassdoor’s list of “25 Cities Where Your Pay Goes Furthest.”

Below, we have outlined our markets that made the top 25 list. We are pleased that residents can save extra money by having a low cost of living ratio. Save for retirement or take an extra vacation in the winter? We’ll leave that up to them!
