Why should you move from San Francisco to Denver?
According to several sources, the migration out of the Bay Area over the past 5 years has been nothing short of significant. In a recent survey of 100 San Francisco residents, 49 of them stated that they would move out of the city if the right opportunity arose. But why has Denver become such a desirable relocation destination? Many of All American Movers’ past clients gave us the following five reasons for moving to Denver from San Francisco:
- First and foremost, Denver offers its residents a better quality of life
- The median price of a single-family home in Denver is nearly 4 times lower than that of the same type of home in San Francisco ($400K compared to $1.5 million).
- Denver is building a reputation as a tech city and is now ranked 8th overall as the best city for technology businesses and jobs.
- Denver’s cost of living is significantly lower – 59% lower cost of housing, 22% lower food costs, and 10% lower healthcare costs.
- The technology sector isn’t the only industry driving Denver’s thriving economy. Jobs are plentiful in the aviation, education, outdoor recreation, healthcare and tourism sectors as well.

How does moving to Denver from San Francisco differ from a local move?

In any event, the longer the distance involved the more complex it will be. A move from San Francisco to Denver is classified as an “interstate” or long-distance move. Aside from the distance involved with a long-distance move, the cost is often what differentiates this type of move from a local move.
In addition to the cost and the distance, there are a couple of other factors that set these two types of moves apart, namely the complexity of a long-distance move and the amount of preparation required. If you think about this for a moment, a local move is considerably less difficult than moving across a couple of states. Furthermore, a long-distance move requires more preparation as well as having a back-up plan to contend with should any problems that may arise. Not only do you need to pack the possessions with greater care as any movement during can damage it if it is not sturdily packed.
