I feel like we are going backwards....

we are moving in 2 weeks back north. Back to the congestion, ugly strip malls, high taxes and old expensive houses..

it's just not right to have to leave our new huge house with low taxes!!!

Sure, I did, but I moved back to NC again 30 years later. Job opportunties took me away and retirement brought me back.

You know, they say... "Never say Never".

But in this case I'll break the rule. NEVER!!

There was a report on MSN the other day that stated the BOOM in the Raliegh housing market was mainly due to northerners that had moved down to florida, didn't like it and headed halfway back to NC. The term it used for these people was "halfbackers"

The good news for Raleigh is that it projected the housing market to continue to grow there, and for prices to drop here in Phoenix

That is good in general but not so good for people like me who need to sell here before we go to NC

I heard on the news today that many home builders are already projecting after 14 (yes 14) straight quarters of growth for it to be down, due to the IMBALANCE in the market..so, while houses are coming down in areas like CA, NY and AZ and the growth is still in NC, there houses will increase but not to any great degrees..there is a lot of un-easiness in all markets due to the interest rate, the middle east issues etc...If people from highed price areas can no longer come to a growth area like NC, correction will occur there too...these big builders if losing $$ in one area, will start offering more incentives in booming areas to correct their own financials and re-sells will have to make it more appealing to buy their home over a new one...

All states now are competing for business offering all kind of tax incentives..etc.

I think NC will continue to grow but some up it will slow down as even in the paper Union County is trying to slow it by not allowing builders unless they pay additional $$ due to tax issues there...

It will be interesting to see how all this plays out for the rest of the yr and into next year...

My fear with living in NY now is the terrorism issues are getting worse and worse all over, when will they strike the US again (maybe not even NY) if something like that happens, it will impact everyone.

Yep. I'm sure you have already read about the recent plot to bomb the PATH tunnels? It's scary. And what's even more concerning is that this was discovered. Who knows what other plots are in the works and we just don't know about them. But this is a whole different discussion so I'll just stop for now.

I do not want to drag this on either but it would not be that difficult for a terroist to get on the LIRR, get in Penn and then ...

What is going on all over now is very un-settling...and while war is not on our territory we are also facing the impact (gas, oil - etc) ... and it does not look like it will end anytime soon

You can't live your life worrying about - but just makes you stop and think

Be safe everyone!
