Westminster Ranks Among the 50 Best U.S. Cities for Remote Workers

Remote work has already sparked moves among professionals who can do their jobs from anywhere. According to a recent Upwork report, around 5 million Americans moved to a new city in the last two years thanks to work flexibility.

So, where should remote workers relocate? To Westminster. According to RentCafe’s latest report, the city ranks among the top 50 hotspots for remote workers nationwide, offering a great mixture of remote work conditions, work-life balance opportunities, affordability and comfort. Surprisingly, Denver did not make the cut.

Here are the highlights:

  • Westminster has everything remote workers need. Almost 81% of rentals have internet access (78.2 Mbps) and there are shared workspaces where digital nomads can meet up — currently, there are 2,608 remote workers per coworking space.
  • Apartments in Westminster offer an average of 861 square feet of space, enough to designate an area for a home office. In addition, 56% of rentals are high-end, which earned the city extra points in the comfort category.
  • If work-life balance is a deal breaker for remote workers, Westminster has it covered. Besides amazing parks and an active social scene, 92% of apartments have sports amenities and there are more than 200 sunny days per year in the city.
  • Professionals interested in temporarily moving to Westminster can easily find short-term rentals. Short-term leases are available for 18% of apartments and the daily rate for these averages at $178.
  • While Denver has a growing community of remote workers — 12.4%, the cost of living in the city is above the national average and the daily rate for short-term leases averages at $173. More so, the occupancy rate for short-term rentals is high (80%), which pushed the city down to the 61st spot on our list.
