We're working on leaving CA behind, but shhhhhh...don't advertise this idea! I don't want the Indy area to become the next Texas, Arizona or Idaho that I hear are getting overrun with CA transplants.

It won't matter one way or another regarding Indy, because housing prices are very low and will remain low due to the absurd amount of cheap throwaway housing, (that ages poorly and yields additional expensive maintenance), that is thrown up everywhere and massive sprawl.

What??? This is not at all how I would describe the type of home I'm looking for and have either been out-bid on or didn't even have time to bid on before it was snapped up by another home buyer.

He said it was so affordable he could travel pretty much anywhere due to the cost of living.
I'm from Denver, where most people might get up to the mountains once a year. You can live in the Midwest, fly to the mountains once a year instead of sitting in traffic, and still save money. Once you're tired of the mountains, you can fly somewhere else.

It depends on the area of the city and the price point... Above $350-400K you will find better built houses with higher quality materials and finishes...

Exactly, why not live where there's no traffic affordable and you have money to travel.

My Son in-law joined the Marines and has been gone for 3 years. He wanted to meet up with some friends and have a few drinks.

The only thing Indiana has is a lower cost of living. If I were doing ok in California it would be a cold day in hell before I moved to Indiana.
