Hi Everyone,

I just recently got a new job where I will be making in the 80's and I can live anywhere I want to in the US because I work from home. I have been doing research and this area meets alot of my needs. First off will my salary be enough to live well in this area?

I would like some reccomendations on places/neighborhoods to live in and which school districts are good. My daughter is an avid cheeleader so we need to find a good gym as well.

Thanks for your imput.

The answer all depends on the lifestyle decisions you make.

You will be able to live just fine in the triangle for the 80's. Of course, you still have to live within your means. But, that's true for everyone.

You'll be fine This area offers a lot of housing options. You have the best of both worlds ...making great money AND working at home! Not sure what line of work you are in but are they looking to hire? Can't hurt to ask. Would love a work at home gig but they are hard to come by.

I would move somewhere with no state incoming tax if you can work from anywhere.
