By SOTG News Service


It’s getting more and more expensive to live in Music City, according to a new study. The Nashville Metro area came in at number one GoBankingRates.com’s list of top 10 U.S. cities where the cost of living is rising.

The website conducted a study to identify which cities have seen the largest cost of living increase over a one-year period from 2016-2017, including metrics:

  • The increase in the cost of living, including food, rent, utilities, and transportation.

According to the website, the median list price for a home has risen by almost 30 percent—from under $260,000 to nearly $340,000 – from April 2015 to April 2017.

The study found it takes a salary of $70,150 to live in Nashville.

Here’s the full list of cities:

  1. Nashville
