Thanks I will have to check into that area. Marin County is worse than here so I don't blame you for leaving. This whole area is beautiful but we want to own something someday and with the average house costing $550,000 and with our combied imcome being about 65,000 a year there is no way it will ever happen. Once again thanks for the feedback.

Sorry I guess I should said what I consider midsize. To me midsize would be roughly 15,000 to 30,000 people. Enough people so there are jobs and stores but not so crowded that attending a function in your local town is not worth the hassle We have quite a few small towns in CA believe it or not with a population of about 1,000 people or less but those areas are often expensive due to people from areas like the one I am in fleeing and driving the cost of housing up. I defiantly want something much smaller than the 200,000+ population that I grew up in. Thanks for the feedback.

What has changed from 2006 to 2016 is the cost of living has been exponentially increased in bay area... we could hardly get a one bedroom apartment for less than USD 2200 in bay area.. I don't know about NC, but we are planning to move as well..

Please look around at the more recent threads. Numerous other families have moved from California to Charlotte, Raleigh/Durham, and so on. Prices and crowds have increased in North Carolina as well, so please be ask specific with your questions as possible about regions, job opportunities, etc.

I wouldn't personally choose Jacksonville. Our son did military training there and didn't like the area at all. Look at Wilmington if you want to look at a smaller/medium metro. Charlotte or Greensboro areas for a larger metro. Good luck!

If you want to be near the coast, you'll have better responses on the Coastal NC forum.

I moved from San Diego to the foothills South of Morganton in May and I love it. Rent with option, 1600 sq ft with acreage. $500/mo.
