SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – came up with a methodology to track “the optimal spot for your telecommuter lifestyle.”

The website gave cities scores for financial incentives, earnings potential, connectivity, affordability, safety, amenities and workspaces, which led to an overall score.

While the Bay Area was high in average household incomes for remote workers, taking the No. 1 (Sunnyvale), No. 3 (Fremont), No. 4 (San Francisco) and No. 5 (San Jose) spots in those categories, it did not show up in the top 10, which were:

  1. Plano, Texas (67.1)
  2. Frisco, Texas (67.0)
  3. Tampa, Florida (65.6)
  4. Atlanta, Georgia (63.9)
  5. Seattle, Washington (63.4)
  6. Durham, North Carolina (63.2)
  7. Austin, Texas (63.0)
  8. Kansas City, Missouri (62.5)
  9. Jacksonville, Florida (62.2)
  10. Charlotte, North Carolina (62.0)

San Francisco was all the way down that list at No. 103, with a score of 50.4.
