I just looked at the CNN cost of living comparison and it's almost the same COL from Phoenix to Greensboro. So you would actually be losing money on the deal. The only thing that would make it worthwhile is the scenery and the greenery. I have been to Phoenix a few times and I have friends who moved to where I am at in SoCal from there. My friends said they would never move back due to the desert and the heat.

Even in SoCal where I live currently it was nice flying back to NC to the greenery and having actual trees(not palms trees or pines). So I would make the move but then look for something better when you are here.

And while I get that you might say "why ask if you already made up your mind?", imagine how weird it would be if anonymous strangers on an internet forum ACTUALLY WERE the deciding factor in whether or not to pick up and move thousands of miles.
Thank you! And to the other people who asked why did I even ask well I was curious. Why else do ask questions. Have blessed day!
