Huntsville, Al is one of the most industrious cities in Alabama and you can get a 4 bedroom houses for under 70,000.00.....some are a lot cheaper than that. We are rated #5 as the best cities to live in in the U.S...that was in an article I read a couple of months ago. Lots of jobs available, jobs still on the horizon (new businesses being built) Some of the surrounding towns are really cheap too...Haze Green is a very quaint little town with good schools, low crime...and also has cheap housing. Not just because I live here, but if I was you I would check Huntsville and surrounding towns out. Huntsville is not too big and not too small, it's just a nice size city....nothing like Birmingham.

That would be a pretty crummy house. JMHO.

The size of a city is totally subjective. Personally I think Bham is as small as I'd go. I like the size of it right now.
As for the economy... time will tell. Its a federal gov't town, and things are looking a little rough on that front.

I'd have to second Huntsville too. You just can't judge by the overall living costs because there are pockets of lower housing costs that are much lower than the mean. I pay $528 a month rent for a very decent 1BR in a blue collar area free of crime. Many people at my complex don't lock their doors. Yet I have access to top-rank shopping if I want because of all the engineers in the area.

Great advice !

And, like others have stated, you are not going to find a job hiring unskilled labor paying $15 .

There seem to be a couple of towns / municipalities around Bham that offer a very low cost of living. I'm guessing crime is high in those neighborhoods (like Fairfield)
