Over the last decade, many young professionals who have found success in coastal cities like San Francisco, Seattle, and New York have made the move to America’s heartland and landed in Oklahoma City. During that time, OKC’s population has grown twice as fast as the national average. For prospective homebuyers, this city has the winning combination of more space, less crowding, and a lower cost of living.
But why Oklahoma City in particular? Young families love that we have some of the best schools in the nation. For outdoorsy folks, our four-season climate graces us with more than 235 days of pure sunshine per year. From hiking to boating to golfing, recreational opportunities abound in OKC. And with an average commute of only 21 minutes, people here spend less time in traffic and more time having fun. In fact, among cities of comparable size, OKC has the lowest commute time in the country.
