Looking to Start Over? Try Indianapolis!

downtown-freeThank you to Relocation.com for conducting a survey to compile the list of “Best Cities for a Fresh Start”. In this economy, with unemployment rates going up while the national economy continues to head down, many people are searching out communities that offer them a better standard of living.

Unlike many lists that focus solely on the economy, Relocation.com took a wide-ranging look at factors that would appeal to someone looking for a fresh start: city ‘popularity’ based on consumer requests for moving quotes to move to that city; economic-growth prospects; home affordability; and the strength of a community as reflected by volunteerism rates. Great criteria, and look at who comes in at number 5!!!
