Americans Regret Buying a Home in These Big Cities

Memphis, Tennessee

Last, but not least, we have Memphis, Tennessee. Even locals freely admit that Memphis is a terrible place to live, and they don’t understand why people move there. They’ve got everything: high crime rates, high poverty rates, limited public transport, and a shrinking population. Many residents just shift on over to Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Residents also note that it’s less developed than other cities, getting staple chain corporations like Trader Joe’s later than other cities. It is about a two-hour drive for any outdoor activities. However, Memphis is not completely without upsides. Locals love the food, the music, and the energy of the city, but if you didn’t grow up there, it’s probably best to stay away.
