Default Climate

I have close friends and family who moved to NC. The primary reason? Climate. Warmer, milder, sunnier, more tolerable weather year-round. NC has distinct regions: the coast, the piedmont, and the western mountains, so you might find differences across the state. But overall, they're happier in NC because of the better weather.

If you are a wealthy retiree, moving to NC makes sense. Your money will go further down here because property taxes are relatively low compared to where you live now.

If you are still working, don't move here because you will be paid about 1/3 the amount you make in the Northeast. Your property taxes will be lower, but you will have to pay $25K a year to have your children educated at a private school because the public school budgets have been cut to the bone. You won't have to ***** about teacher salaries, because the NC teacher salaries rank 48th in the country out of 50. If you are currently a teacher, you are probably moving to another state or looking into another profession so that you can survive. If you are a state employee here in NC, you haven't had a raise since 2007, and your benefits cost more and more every year. If you are unlucky enough to lose your job, you will receive a maximum of $350/week for unemployment, and it will only be for a few months.

Whether to move south or not depends on you and what you want. There are several THREADS of people who have moved to NC or SC or FL for a variety of reasons. Many people also have moved back. Housing and salaries are cheaper and the weather is better, however, some people miss their families, don't care for the snakes, bugs and heat.
