Relocating to Birmingham and Discovering the Magic City

Birmingham is one of the three most populous cities in Alabama, along with Montgomery and Huntsville with which it sometimes switches spots. It is the seat of Jefferson County and an important regional hub as it lies at the center of the largest metropolitan area in the state.

While the median home value in Birmingham is nearly 50 percent lower than in the capital city of Huntsville, fewer people own their homes here, preferring to rent at values very similar to Huntsville or Montgomery. If you are moving to Birmingham and want to test the waters first, renting does make a lot of sense. However, buying a home ends up being more affordable if you decide to make your stay permanent.

Birmingham Attractions You Don't Want To Miss

Relocating is an exciting experience but it can also be overwhelming, especially in a place that is dubbed the "Magic City". While the nickname comes from its rapid expansion during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Birmingham's current magic draws on the many attractions and entertainment options that can make it difficult to choose where to go first.
