Home to more than a million residents, the greater Memphis area offers something for everyone. Residents of Memphis enjoy a relatively low cost of living, the purest water supply in the country, more trees per square mile than any other city, a temperate climate, four distinct seasons, and the hospitable atmosphere and pace of the "City of Good Abode."
A wide variety of affordable housing exists to suit almost any lifestyle. Choices range from high-rise apartments and renovated downtown lofts overlooking the river to a seemingly endless array of single-family homes in the area's numerous metropolitan, suburban, and rural neighborhoods.
