Hello My family is fairly young and small, only myself, wife, and young child. (three years old) Our annual income is around 130k, what would be the best areas to live for this type of income?

We enjoy the summer weather, can deal with winter snow, just nothing over excessive., We are from Toronto, Canada and would like to find a warmer area.

I am a CPA Accountant, so can basically find work anywhere, and would like a 3 bedroom home, around the 1450-1600+ Square Feet range.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Have you looked at Louisville, KY? We have a low cost of living so you would be able to find a house easily that you can afford. We are also slow paced for a bigger city and for the most part the people are friendly. It also depends on what kind of career you have as to your ability to get a job though.Good luck!

I was actually looking at Louisville and the NC area during some of my research.

Why not check out Indy? Cheap housing, while there is still good shopping and plenty to do.

There's also Columbus, Denver, Nashville, etc

if your coming from Toronto im guessing you would want to move to comparable big city. Houston and Toronto are about the same in size and Houston has one of the lowest cost of living in the coutry. On top of the cheap prices your going be living in a cosmopolitan huge metro, just like Toronto. From what ive heard Toronto is very diverse with all kinds of people, just like Houston.

If it's around the area you mentioned, I suggested Raleigh or Charlotte. The Triad area of NC is a good place to live.

You could do very nicely in the Portland, Maine area. And winters in Maine are very mild compared to how they used to be. They had a couple of big storms hit late this past winter, but the previous winter, we had grass showing most of the season.

Otherwise I would say the triangle area of NC would be a very nice choice.

Many people highly recommend Saratoga Springs, NY which is at the base of the Adirondack Mountains in the north country of New York. The average median income of the county is one of the highest in upstate NY and their are plenty of outdoor activities and recreation in the area.
