Garland Is Among Best Cities to Work from Home

Garland, as it turns out, is well-positioned for what may be a major part of the “new normal” in American life. The City was rated No. 2 in Texas and No. 11 in the nation on the list of Best U.S. Cities to Work from Home.

Grow + Acorns, CNBC’s online reporting for investing and money management, compiled the list by looking at rental data and internet affordability in apartments in 113 of America’s largest cities. In Garland, the research showed 93% of residents have access to broadband for $60 or less. There are 461 square feet of living and working area per person in Garland, which at 1.9 people per apartment, averages $575 in rent per space per person.

In mid-May, 68% of Americans worked from home, the report said. Lubbock was the only Texas city to fare better than Garland in the comparison, while Arlington also finished in the top 15.
