  1. The prices on housing do vary in each state. Sadly it seems the news reports it so dire for states that are always in the news that people don't get to think about other optioins in other states.

  2. What is SO silly is hw much prices of homes (and living in general), have inflated astronomically but that salaries haven't. Regular, wonderful, people working hard and paying their bills can't afford $200 thousand for a small house (even with the low rates), at least, that's how much houses cost where I am.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  3. great info Amanda, am into small and simple, so I guess I am okay in CA as long as I won't swim in million dollar loans for a home, instead have stress free life swimming in the ocean :)

  4. It seems like we can't chose where we want to live because of circumstances, and job is the biggest part of all.

    I believe you'll get more land in TX than in Cali for the money. Great info!

  5. I would love to live in Cali more than TX as far as the weather is concerned, even if the housing and cost of living are higher.

    Good to know information!
