Austin is a great place to live and work, as evidenced by our numerous rankings. It’s the combination of an affordable cost of living and outstanding quality of life. Your hard-earned dollars go further here. Living costs are about five percent under living costs nationally and significantly below many major markets. Our mild climate, outdoor activities, and entertainment options coupled with great schools and affordable housing make it easy to recruit and relocate employees to Austin. Affordable living also means pay scales in Austin are moderate for employers. Pay relatives show that compensation in Austin ranges close to the national average and is likely to be lower than many markets, particularly our peer technology centers in Silicon Valley and the Northeast.
