The pandemic has not only changed how we live, it’s changed how we work. More and more people are working from home, changing the way we think about where we live and what we need in a home. Where is the best place to telecommute from? McKinney.
Recently, lawn care company LawnStarter ranked 150 U.S. cities across the nation to see which ones did the best job of seeing to the unique needs of telecommuters. Then they compiled a list of the top 25. McKinney was No. 1. Cities were rated on factors such as remote job opportunities, internet speed and housing costs.
McKinney placed second for connectivity and convenience, work environment and highest average internet speed.
These factors are probably the best indicators of success. It’s difficult to work from home if your internet speed is slow and you have connectivity issues. The last thing you want during your Zoom meeting is lag time and dropped calls.
Where you work is also important. Some telecommuters rent office space but in McKinney, builders in communities like Trinity Falls often include home offices as a standard part of their floor plans. Some even allow you to add a study or homework nook that can double as office space if both adults are working from home. That saves you money and is very convenient — no driving at all!
Other factors that make working from home easier include cost of living and earning potential. McKinney placed ninth in cost and 25th in earning potential.
