Cheapest Place to Live on the East Coast

post #1 of 107
Thread Starter 
Every so often, I think of moving to somewhere that has a lower cost of living.
Proximity to the coast is not a priority.

No need to worry about employment. So where would you go if you didn't need to find a job? I'm looking for warm weather but exclude Florida and Georgia, that's too warm.

I'll come to RI and MA for the late spring into early fall.

SC? NC? MD? WV? VA?

Hell,even Florida gets snow occasionally.
Anything is better than New England.

Where can I find a cheap house and a cheap living expense? I'm ready to pull up my stakes here and bolt...

West Virginia is dirt cheap depending on where you live. Since you don't have to worry about employment, you could go anywhere. I have a particular liking for Summersville. Big lake to explore, lots of mounteens.

Haiti is reasonably priced right now.

Here's a snippet from an article I just read on this subject. My vote is Corpus Christi. Lotsa good fishing around there too.

Charleston, South Carolina, and the South Texas coastal town of Corpus Christi run just about neck and neck when it comes to being some of the more affordable coastal areas in which to live. The average home cost in Charleston Metro is about $266,000, compared with Corpus Christi's average home values at $230,000. There is about a $100 difference in rent averages and food costs appear to be lower in Corpus Christi. However, energy costs are higher in Charleston.

Yes, if it's just you you might be willing to live in Hickville but I doubt it would be conducive to your children's education.



Since when did we ever have to mine for your personal info, you readily post a lot of it.

Wife, kids and dogs. Possibly the workshop.
