Be careful. We moved from Mass to NC 2 years ago and regret it mightily. We are moving back to Mass in 2 years. I can elaborate if you wish...

Oh I sooooo agree with you! We moved to NC from Mass 2 years ago and regret it . We are moving back to Mass in 2 years. Yes, the South and its people are the pits.

See one more smart person on here. I finally got sick enough of Florida I just said "lets move in august, it's now June, we can do it" We all saved up and I was here in Western Mass on August 17th!!!! I kissed the ground when I got back.

Do you mind clarifying why you regret it? We moved to NC from MA and I am not so sure it is the place for us. People are nice here and it seems like there is quite a bit going on but I need to give it some time to see how things pan out. Curious to know more details on why you regret it.

Since I've escaped MA and NE, my blood pressure has also gone down (can't say anything about weight b/c I eat my tex-mex and great BBQ!!)
I do miss the autumn mornings and drinking my DD coffee and the crisp air... but let me tell you, I will only visit in the months of Sept. to early Nov. and I will never LIVE there again!
When you go back to your "home" state that is completely different..for some going to NE and Mass is going home......I can't wait. NO MORE HURRICANES!!!! No more hot, hot, hot weather. Bring on the seasons!!

Angry No Way!

I lived in MA for the first 50 years of my life. Grew up in inner city Boston where it was dirty and dangerous. After I married, we could never find a decent apartment to live in because landlords would not accept kids. By 2000 the housing prices had gotten so rediculously high, I decided to move out. I now live in Arizona--only wish I had moved here a long time ago when my kids were little--much better opportunity for housing and Christian schools. I would not move back to MA for all the money in China. As far as I am concerned it is an overpriced dump--and, yes, the drivers in MA are the rudest I have seen anywhere!

The only difference is that, unless you don't mind everything having mouse ears on it...there is NOTHING to do!!! I guess we all think the other side of the fence is greener. I am looking forward to my years in MA! and mostly just out of Florida!!!

that's quite a statement. perhaps you could arrange to move back sooner, before two years?

I agree with Grass is Greener... it's a great time to be a home-buyer in Massachusetts right now. Tons of inventory, sellers are finally getting realistic (well more realistic anyway...) than they were even a year ago. Wish we had a crystal ball to know if it's going to last more than a year or two... the nicest thing is that people have the opportunity to mull over the decision for several days before making an offer, and are able to make much more sound decisions.
