The meager Oklahoma market can't bear California apartment rent rates. Farmers left the dust bowl of Sooner to California in the 1930's for a reason. Now CA high prices and liberal gun-grabbing politics are driving Americans eastward again.

You've been influenced by Hollywood too much. We Native Okies do like the false narrative of tumbleweeds and only tall grass prairie as it tends to keep the transplants out.

A huge chunk of Oklahoma lies in the Crosstimbers. Look into it and good luck.

Don't forget Medicine Park. It's one of the neatest spots in the state and there are three or four good places to eat plus Ann's Pies out on the Highway.
