Edit: Omaha does use more brick on the exterior on some newer construction compared with Kansas City. That is a plus in my book
My house is stone, looks very nice.

Awesome I just don't care for the look of vinyl siding much at all even if it means less maintenance.

Your cost of living will be roughly the same. You should be able to find a decent one-bedroom in a middle-class neighborhood for around $600 (or less) per month.

I think Omaha, is not a cheap place to live. Its property taxes are very high. How can anyone buy a house with taxes so high. I came from Salt Lake,Ut and the taxes there are low. Its a very clean state, the roads are always re-paved every year. The streets are cleaned and swept often. In Omaha the street are dirty and the roads are trouble. The schools in Utah are safe and clean, here in Omaha they are scary looking and dirty. I love Utah for its cleaniness and safety.

Aside from the taxes you would pay to Douglas County on a home or vehicle registration, I'd say Omaha is average or better. My parents lived in Chigago for 4 years and had twice the home and paid 1/2 the taxes they did before they moved from Omaha.

High taxes? You clearly are a troll. I have family in salt lake city and their tax rate is close to ours (ours rate is about 10-15% higher but we pay less total taxes and live in a nicer house).

You, like almost everyone, seem to forget that Omaha has VERY cheap housing. A $100k house in Omaha would be $150-200k even in salt lake city.
