A program called Tulsa Remote will pay remote workers from out of state $10G up front to buy a house in Tulsa.
"Tulsa Remote, the program which has been paying remote workers $10,000 to move to the city since 2018, has now offered to sweeten the deal. While the program would previously pay its members $10,000 in installments over the course of their first year living in Tulsa, it is now offering to pay $10,000 toward the purchase of a home in one lump cash grant.
With a median home price of $188,000 as of January according to the Greater Tulsa Association of Realtors, that $10,000 payment could account for a substantial piece of a down payment at more than 5% of the total median price."
