Seems like no matter where you go, most folks are living paycheck to paycheck. Before you move, make sure you do your homework. If some place is cheaper, there is usually a trade off. Most likely it will be a decrease in pay. In which case, you kinda end up in the same boat. Take it from a lot of folks who have already located, it's best to be close to friends/family and there is no place like home.

Thanks. I by no way meant to steal the thunder of NJ, as I love many areas of the Garden State as well, but I'm just tiring of so many people in NJ incessantly bashing PA without visiting any part of it besides the ghetto areas of Philadelphia. Likewise, I hear many locals who call NJ the "Garbage State," even though that is the farthest image from my mind when visiting Cape May or Sussex County. I hope to branch out into North Jersey on Wednesday for a new photo tour---stay tuned!

Texas is nice but personally it's a bit too hot for my taste. We're looking somewhere South but not Texas. We considered Pennsylvania but found it filled with former NY/NJ residents which is exactly what we were trying to get away from. Tennessee is an option we are considering.

Kewl, I live in Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin Area. It's beautiful, low real estate taxes, no state income tax.
For less expensive Real Estate in proximity to Nashville, is Murfreesboro where you will pay about half of Nashville's price. It's also home to Middle Tenneesse State University. There are lots of jobs and good shopping there. You can find new subdivisions therei n the $200,000, while the area I live is nearer to Late 300,000 and up.
Real Estate taxes in Murfreesboro will be under $2,000 a yr, while Nashville is closer to $2800-$3500 a yr.
TN also has no state income tax.

great post! let me add Wayne, East Rutherford, and Lake Hiawatha to that list of flood areas, with homes going for 450K and up.

When you move don't vote Democrat......otherwise they'll kick your ass out of Texas too....

Kidding aside, I have a bunch of friends that have moved to Austin and they are very very happy.
