Employment. I'd rather stayed in Tennessee than relocate to Indiana, but Tennessee's job market is dead.

COL because I am retired and couldn't afford to live in the city which I had been working. Even working I couldn't afford the city in which I had been working but as a retiree, I couldn't afford it even more.

I'm a recent college grad that lives at home, so cost of living for me lol. I'd like to pick a place based on its culture and urban amenities.

Family for the most part. I also have a decent job here but also have significant debt that prevents me from making any real changes in my life, so I am trying to make the best of it.

Well I was born and raised here and because of that, college was cheap. So here I am. I would love to live somewhere else when I graduate in August.

Educational and employment opportunities, low cost of living, relatively moderate climate and nice outdoor amenities, and easy accessibility to other places nationwide and beyond.

I don't see myself living in metro Atlanta as a retiree in 20 years or so - too much traffic and many of the amenities are increasingly available in smaller metropolitan areas as well. But my preference is to stay in the Southeast region long term.

I really like where I live because I have some really nice people that live close to me, and I really enjoy the atmosphere of the main street of the city/town I live in.
