House prices are still high, they just stay on the market a lot longer now.
The property taxes in Washington are grave. Maybe Idaho would be a better choice

Well, I don't know what to tell you. Maybe you should stay where you are?

Look at it from my p.o.v., okay? Why would I want you to move to my state if you can't afford to live here? Why would anyone want you?

Where do the majority of Bham residents buy furniture from, when I lived there, there was Smiths Home Furnishings, but they have been gone for over 12 years now.

Our taxes are skyhigh and the price of gas is higher than anywhere else in the whole world.

O.k so your gonna say housing is cheaper on p.a of course it is noone wants to live there jobs suck unless you live in Pittsburgh and paying high taxes and traffic way worse. The weather is much hotter in the summer and alot colder in the winter. I lived in Ohio my whole life moving to Michigan 4 years ago the to Delaware and back to Ohio before moving to Washington. Ohio you can buy a house 3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms 3 story for 2,000 yeah 2 grand. Why?? economy sucks!!!! Bellingham is the most beautiful place i'v been to yeah the weather sucks, but there are jobs beautiful scenery things to do. I love it here and wouldnt mve for nothing. So come on people stop bitchin welll i am sure if there was more sun out everyone would be happy. Things could be worse you could have snow to your knees at below 10 degree temps in P.A. with no job!!! GET REAL there is no place like Bellingham 100 percent natural beauty with or with out the rain.

That is the most miserable state I have ever lived. You can find homes in the 125K range, but who the H...would want to live there. Certainly no one from the west coast. Its flat, ugly, humid, full of nasty loud bitting bugs, snakes, low wages, hurricanes, tornadoes, dangerous electrical storms. Prop taxes on 200k is 6 grand, yes thats not a mistake. Just move out of Bellingham and sell me your house CHEAP if your desperate to get out. Im desperate to get back in.

Uh...have you noticed that we have recently asked for disaster relief for I don't know how many counties here in Western WA due to the fact people need scuba gear to live in their houses? Those poor people have salmon swimming through their living rooms. But they don't have bugs or snakes I bet. I'm thinking now is not a good time to compare WA to any other place in the natural disaster aspect or the "this could happen to you" aspect of the bad. I'm just sayin'.

Texas gets major Floding desasters every year. Especially in 2007. YEs these are the house destroying desasters. Texas had over 9 major natural desasters in the 5 months I lived there. We have seen nothing compared to Texas. Not to mention add in several tornados. Instead of salmon, try have water moccasins swiming in your home. THen once the flood receeds you get infested by millions and millions of nasty black crickets. And then deal with the mugginess.....A flood in Oregon and Wa every 10-12 years or so compared to every year, several times a year IMO is a much better option.
