above 50? and you said you wont do the FL thing.. FL is above 50 for the most part but everywhere else not so much.

But i know Fort Myers, FL is pretty cheap but some areas of that city are one of the worse areas of the state, but dont get me wrong... there is nice parts of fort myers.

She probably meant average highs of at least 50.

What do you mean "too many winters"? Doesn't Michigan have one winter a year, just like everywhere else? We found Texas to be surprisingly pleasant, my city is about half Hispanic, and jobs are plentiful in Texas. Very low cost of living. You need AC about 4 months a year, and never need to turn the heat on.

Thank you all for your responses. Sorry for the lateness. They all sound great. SC sounds great. I also looked up arizona...I heard things are really booming there too.

We live in MI right now but are looking to relocate too. NC was on our list but its more expensive then MI. So is SC. We are looking into NW Arkansas right now. Still 4 seasons but only a dusting of snow in the winter. No hurricanes or tornados like some of SC,NC, AL,FL and TX. The health care around that area is growing. They have had great improvements to their area hospitals.

I have a friend going to school @ MUSC in Charleston, SC... Still a waiting list yrs long. GREAT school though. nice golf courses but hurricanes and about twice as expensive as MI for housing.

My husband does the same kinda work. I've been searching for jobs for him elsewhere too.. but construction is hard about everywhere right now. I heard AR,MS,LA and AL had the most jobs in the state for construction workers though.. mainly because of rebuilding after Katrina... You'd never catch me living down that far.. WAY too humid and swampy for me!!!!

Good luck on your search!!

How about Phoenix / Scottsdale? Burgeoning health care environment, and the housing market - construction - will pick up again. Temperatures are nearly always, even in the winter, higher than 50. Job market is relatively stable. Big Latino market. Low crime in Scottsdale and parts of central Phoenix. Friendly neighborhoods. Golf everywhere.
