Cheapest Place to Live on the East Coast - Page 2

post #16 of 94
South Virgina has a low cost of living. It doesn't snow much.

It's a nice place to live. A lot of people move down here from the north.

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.


Charleston, South Carolina is a GREAT place !!

I have a few friends who recently scored beautiful houses in Ft Myers/ Sw FL for super cheap. One buddy lives 1 mile from bass pro shops on a little canal in a 1800sq ft house he got for under a 100K. He said the big problem is a lack of industry and jobs. I know it gets hot but hell it gets hot up here sometimes and snows down there. screw it.. that what climate control is for!

According to my kids, my house is the cheapest place...

Unfortunately, many places "south" are getting tired of the influx of yankees, except Florida of course. Florida's coastal personality and attitudes are getting almost as nasty of some of the "northern" states.

everyone knows that nj is the cheapest place to live! ! !

on a real note. if everyone is moving south, how are there no jobs down there...? surley they need bigger schools and hospitals and municipal buildings and such. more box stores and retirement developments. there has to be a boom at some point!!

Y'all come now y'heah? Been in S.C. since 1980. Lots of us yankees here and more arriving daily. Lower living cost, no winter to speak of (except for Feb this year). Housing costs reasonable, real estate taxes way low......my 2700 ft sq Williamsburg brick/Acre/Great area @ less than $400 per year......that's right.

Anyplace in NC that is east of I-95 and west of the water about 2 miles is dirt cheap. The closer you are to a hog lagoon, the cheaper it gets.

Ozarks in Arkansas.
South Pittsburg Tennessee.
North Georgia Mountains
Lake Guntersville Alabama area

Contrary to conventional Northeast Corridor thinking there is a great deal of real estate that is nowhere near I 95.

All too far south and west... East coast states and no further than SC. Proximity to the ocean isn't a must but I don't want to be in a different time zone... Lets keep the search to EST.
