Don't move to California unless you want to be broke all the time. Everything here is so expensive. Why exactly do you want to move here anyways? I've been to Wisconsin before and thought it was a lot better than California in my opinion. Also, you definitely shouldn't move here if you don't have a job lined up.It's not easy to get a job right now.

$900 / month mortgage - 1000 sq ft home.

The warm weather, more career oportunities are mostly why we want to move.

You bought it in 2008 and you want to sell it now; won't you incur a loss?

Doesn't tell us much because we don't know the equity and down payment. What are homes like that selling for out there?
In Southern California, homes in nice neighborhoods start at about $200/sqft.

What line of work are you in?

Recommend you find jobs first, then come back to the forum otherwise we can suggest places all day and it really won't help much.

Never been to California, yet you want to move there? They have planes in Wisconsin. How about getting on one first.

I would highly recommend you visit first, especially since you aren't certain of where in the state you want to move. Unless you are independently wealthy, have a lot of money saved up, or have good money coming into your bank account in some way, it would behoove you to have a good paying job lined up before you move AND to have your house in Wisconsin sold first.

Just a few years ago, I used to advise all my friends to give LA a shot, as it sure worked out well for me after some initial struggle. Things have gotten progressively worse since then. I'd still try it if I were single and had some savings AND the knowledge of the area that I have now... but in your situation, it seems you'll be much better off postponing your move. Seriously.
