We live in Riverside. I have never seen rent that high? Where are you living? Good luck finding employment out of state. I have many friends that live all over the US. If you are a newcomer especially from CA you are going to have a difficult time. Most states prefer to hire their own or if you know someone-communities are tight. I have lived in other states and the grass is always greener. But their is crime and downsides to all areas. There is no Utopia and most states really don't want Californian's moving in. Texas maybe your best bet for jobs. My son is in Austin right now and he said its booming. I think that may be your best bet.

I don't mean to discourage you from moving I just learned from my own realty check that it is difficult to move into a new state especially if you are from CA. We are stereotyped in other states-I have experienced it. Plus, when you have kids it is hard to uproot them from their established friends-that is important. When my kids were little a job transfer forced us out of state for a while and it was hard for the kids. I would say if you can just stay for the kids sake so they can be with their friends. I have seen cheaper places to live in Riverside. I don't know where you are looking but there are several areas cheaper than what you are paying. Lots of foreclosurers and high rate of unemployment but that is unfortunately everywhere right now. I would get a firm job offer before i ventured out as a newbie in another state. Just my two cents.

I have many friends who moved from Cali to Utah. No problems that I know of.

My spouse and I left Los Angeles 21 years ago - specifically because the only place at the time we could afford - would have been Riverside. And the thought of commuting 2-3 hours a day - just to be able to afford a life there - was more than we could handle.

I've been employed here for all of those 21 years. No problems.
