I will be working in information systems, specifically data analytics. I would prefer warmer weather over colder, but I could adapt to a Minneapolis-style winter for the right combination of factors.

These are great suggestions so far.

Everywhere, including the desirable surrounding suburbs.

Whether renting:

Nashville rental rates show no sign of slowing down

Or buying:

If it's NOT happening in a certain area, you wouldn't want to live there anyway.

And the city does have more than its share of transplants:

I knew about the transplants, but I didn't know about the home prices going up like that. Thanks for the good info.

I wonder if Knoxville would be a good choice.

Anyone know how Greenville (SC), Chattanooga, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, or Richmond (VA) could fit into these criteria? Just places I had been vaguely looking into that have not been mentioned yet.

Chattanooga (and Knoxville) have a long way to go in the restaurant dept.

They would fit the other criteria, though.

Have you considered Tulsa?

Our cost of living is pretty low and our unemployment rate is below 5%. Most homes in the MSA are under 150k. The median rent is just over $700/mo. The restaurant space is good with more Mediteranean and Asian restaurants opening. Tulsa is not dominated by chain restaurants so there is always a great local alternative for lunch or dinner nearby. About half the bars downtown squeeze their own juices for cocktails which is a start in the right direction. Tulsa also received the largest public park endowment in US history last week for 350 million dollars for the new "Gathering Place" just south of downtown. http://www.tulsaworld.com/newshomepa...1abd8d474.html

The geography is trees, hills and decent soil, not flat with red dirt. Our music scene is getting better and our local arena, the BOK Center, has been nominated for the Pollstar awards for best arena every year since it opened (we always lose though). It does that without a major league sports team to help prop up sales and amenities. Pollstar Awards Archive

I will admit it can have miserable humidity but it isn't like Houston or Dallas. When it does arrive, it is just from June to August. We do have four seasons and it has snowed all four winters I've lived here. Granted, town shuts down when it snows but more because our officials haven't completely figured out when to call for plows and when not to. It reminds me of Denver where the snow arrives but melts soon after.

Beats me, but I figured it was a good guess.
