In response to Jake F...can I ask where exactly in Western Albemarle County? We are looking at North Garden, VA for it's close prox. to C-Ville. Also the housing prices seem more affordable. I was hoping you might tell me of an area that I haven't already found. Our big move coming this summer 2014. C-Ville bound.

We're located in an area called Ivy which if I am reading the map right, is quite a few miles closer to Cville than North Garden. I wouldn't call this area bargain priced, but real estate throughout the area has been depressed for several years and people are willing to deal. I think you will love it here, VA2014.

Ivy is much closer in miles and if traffic on 250 is normal an easy ride to town. North garden is around 20 minutes from Cville barracks road exit off of 29. That is from North Garden at 29.

I couldn't agree more, I hate living in such a 'tolerant' place as LA, where no one gives you the time of day, no one says excuse me and people are downright anti-social and hostile. That is yet one more reason we are looking to leave this hell hole!

This is a very difficult decision and the day is approaching ever faster. We've narrowed it to C'Ville, especially with the recent development concerning gay marriage, but also Ithaca, Ann Arbor, MI and Asheville.

I'm really not so worried about people being hostile or unfriendly because we are gay. I'm much more concerned about jobs for my husband and affordable housing. The absolute primary reason for leaving LA is the completely insane real estate prices. We are looking to purchase multi-family building for under $250,000, but the housing stock for that price in all these places seems to be a bit lacking.

For that reason, we are seriously considering my hometown of St. Louis, but I really don't want to be in the city. However, compared to the fantastic and affordable historic housing there, nothing else seems to really stack up. This is a difficult decision!

I like St Louis, a lot. It is an odd city, a river town, but it has a lot of character. And assuming the jobs are available, it has incredibly affordable housing options.

The cities you have on your list otherwise are all "discovered" and the real estate is no bargain, especially in Charlottesville and Ann Arbor.

Good luck.
