These are my requirements the way that city data shows on their city details.

Winter months must be above the average as far as sunshine. Dont need to be Yuma Arizona, just sunnier.

Winter months should be average to above average in temperature.

Id like it to stay 15k-35k population. But would up or lower if necessary.

Rent 1 bd or studio must stay < 450 a month. Might have to rent a room, or move into an inlaw apt from private owners.

Would like crime to be <400 but I can see I may have to up the crime average to stay at under 450 dollars a month apt.


So in a nutshell, no major city, rent under 450, no severe or dark winter.

Places I like are Bristol and Johnson City TN and Searcy Arkansas. I think rent anything under 450 is gonna be really hard. Like a needle in the haystack. So that is why I hope you folks can stear me to other places?

Thank you

Finding rent for $450 or less, in any area, nonetheless a safe area, will be a tough thing to do. And you're wanting a warmer climate, so that makes prices even higher as well.

The only place I've ever known to have rents in the $400-$500 range that I personally know of, is New Albany, IN. Population around 30K-40K, on the other side of the Ohio River from Louisville,KY. The areas where rent is that cheap in New Albany aren't paradise, but they aren't awful either, just some rough types here & there. The good thing about New Albany, is there is a ton of projects ongoing to "revitalize" the downtown, and it's came a long way so far. A lot of restaurants, shops, etc... And you'd be 10 minutes from a large metro if that is of interest to you.

New Albany IN would be ideal were it not for the dark winter and colder than average temps. It has a lot going to it.

It is a very tough thing to find my criterea which is why a bunch of heads is better then just my own.

I can change the crime to higher and the population either way. But I wont change the sun and not freezing winter or how cheap I need the rent to be.

So dont give up on me folks!

How cold to you, is colder than average? The Average highs from December-February were around 45 and low around 30. I realize that's not warm, but it's far from harsh as well, and there was basically no snow at all in winter of 2016.

consider renting a room perhaps? Look in a swath of real estate between NC, SC, GA, TN, northern AL, AR, LA and North East Texas.

Oxford, Starkville, Ocean Springs and Long Beach in MS are worth a look given the criteria.

Hi Greg,

Well I looked on city data for New Albany, IN the weather graphic shows it to be below the average range. I dont know how to make the graphic picture to come here so you can see what Im talking about. That is how I judged it. And the sunshine pic shows way below the average line.

Im going to look those up right now thanks. OK no way. In the order you gave me, these are city data's average rent 814, 700, 897, 997


And true
Look in a swath of real estate between NC, SC, GA, TN, northern AL, AR, LA and North East Texas

But I need city names to research.


I dont want to have to leave the USA. Im neither adventurous or hardy.

I don't believe you're able to leave the USA and it's not easy to just live in another country. No offense.

CityData is great for overall research, but the statistics are usually a bit off. That being said, it's going to be hard to meet your lists of "needs" with a low budget.

New Albany does have 4 seasons overall, so there will be "gloomy" days without sun, as do most places. Good luck with your search
