Lower Cost of Living Makes The Grand a Smart Choice!

Birmingham, Alabama, is known for many things. Its sea of passionate football fans, expertise in cooking Southern BBQ, and affinity for Southern hospitality may be some of the most notable features that come to mind, but its popularity among people looking for new move-in-ready homes has skyrocketed in recent years. We built The Grand, our single-family home community in Birmingham, AL, with a starting price in the mid-$300s, to cater to those seeking an exceptional living experience in an enchanting city at an affordable cost.

According to the Economic Research Institute’s Birmingham cost of living calculator, “Birmingham is 5% less expensive than the national average.” Overall, food, transportation, housing, and healthcare are more affordable here compared to other major cities in the United States. With the lower cost of living as a major selling point, the other perk of living near the University of Alabama-Birmingham may be the added incentive needed to choose Birmingham as the place to relocate.
