We have helped a multitude of families relocate to Omaha recently, with the expansion of UNMC and other area companies. They often get asked by friends and family why they are choosing to move to Omaha and start house-hunting here. Today, we are tackling the WHY question… Why is Omaha so awesome? Why would anyone want to live here?

Omaha real estate is amazing.

Omaha has been expanding to new areas and renewing old ones. With all of this growth and revitalization, Omaha real estate provides many options for homebuyers, even if this is their first time investing in a home. Affordability is the number one aspect working in Omaha’s favor when it comes to Omaha real estate.

Omaha is family-friendly.

From the Omaha Children’s Museum to the Botanical Gardens to the Farmers’ Markets to the Henry Doorly Zoo and everything in between, Omaha provides so many opportunities for family activities, no matter their ages!

Omaha hosts amazing restaurants!

Our food game is top-notch here in Omaha. Our eateries have amazing happy hours and provide the ultimate craft beers and specialty cocktails. Many of our restaurants here in Omaha also have spectacular backstories and are characters themselves!

Omaha has many historical and beautiful walking paths to explore!

Whether you like a more urban walk like our Old Market’s cobblestone streets or something akin to hiking and want to explore parks like Hummel, then Omaha has what you are looking for!

Omaha is a great place to find a job or start a business.

Omaha’s unemployment rate is just 2.7% (as of the end of 2017). This is a 20-year low! Many large corporations are drawn to the metro in order to escape larger cities and have more room to breathe. This leads to more jobs for Midwesterners.

Omaha is also welcoming to new businesses. As part of the “Silicon Prairie,” Omaha is quickly gaining traction as a hub for techpreneurs and other entrepreneurs. As host of the Big Omaha Conference, Omaha’s start-up and small business owners can meet and network together!

You can get anywhere in Omaha in 20 minutes.

Okay, so that one is an inside joke to native Omahans, but once you move here, you’ll get it. No, it’s not **exactly** true, but things are closer than you think. And it’s easy to get one from one end of the city to the other. Move here, and you’ll get the joke in no time!
