Cheaper for sure. As in most things in life. You get what you pay for.

VA has total dumps like Buchanan County and Tazewell County, which are Appalachian backwaters. These areas are absolutely devastated in drugs and crime, while wealthier, safer, urban and suburban areas like NoVA and Nashville power the state.

Everyone who lives outside of Florida might think that, but after living here for a few years they will realize how this state really is. It's a great place to take a vacation but living here is another story.

Fl is a unique place in the world. It takes a special "something" to enjoy living here. If you dont know what it is about, stay home and avoid the hassle of coming and going.

Here you pay $300k for a good house, or one out in the boonies for $200k. Or a shack for $150k+.

In Cape C. I can get one in the nice part for $130k to $150k. In my line of work I make the same amount here or there.

All depends on what era your comparing it to? PB County was way nicer when I moved here in the early 90's and many who left and came back since 2000 are often in a state of shock.
