This is my response when someone says the South only has 1 season. The South has 3 seasons. The only season they don't have is winter, and that works out good for the people that want to avoid winter. Depending on what your definition of winter is, some areas of the South even have winter. Just not to the extent that the North has winter.

Maybe the people in the South don't want people complaining about how hot it is.

"If you live a life of keeping up with the Jonses, then yeah, you'll really struggle with this income."
^^^^^^^^^ from a previous post by Racheal84

My thinking is: Who wants to keep up with the Jones's. They are up to their eyeballs in debt. Yes, you would struggle, not unlike the Jones because of the debt.

Because as I stated here in Houston that's what less than $400 a month will get you. Maybe a studio, but more likely it would be in an undesirable area or Section 8. You still didn't mention where in Texas you lived. Here, rents vary widely depending on what part of town, what neighborhood, what kind of property you're in, but across the board under $400 won't get you much of anything. A cursory look on Craigslist reveals this.

They go where the jobs go, and the quality of life is the best. Which right now is the south.

The middle class is diminishing. That's why there's no real options left except to move somewhere where it's cheaper, which is the south.

Definetly. I think after college I'm going straight to the south. I'm not even sure if I will come back to the NYC metro area. Theres just no point.

Well, if you make a combined income of 100,000+, then you should be fine here.
