San Jose is one of the most expensive metro areas to live in in the US and one of the few where the value of homes has continued to record double-digit growth over the past few years. A key factor behind this trend is perhaps due to the city being the bona fide capital of Silicon Valley. It’s also worth noting that San Jose has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country with about one-quarter of the households earning over $200,000 a year.
