And why would I want to move to that state??

I really need some input from my friends. With this stinking divorce getting really heavy, we have to get our house sold right away. I cannot afford to buy another in So. California. The problem is I love it here and can't think of anywhere else to go? So please tell me the good and not so good reasons to look at buying a home in other states. I really need some help on this guys. I need to move within the next couple of months.
Thanks Juliette

If you can handle rain then Western Washington or Oragon are good states to live in. You have the rain, but you also have the forest and mountains. You get all 4 seasons. Things arn't too expensive in Portland, Seattle is a bit pricier though. Where I live I bought a 3 acher lot with a mobile home on it for $27,500 but it also came with a ride on lawn mower and a new rodatiller, etc

V.I.P.
Well the midwest is a LOT cheaper to buy a house than in CA, so that would be a plus.

Advantages:

Cheaper realestate and houses (3 bedroom house in good areas starting at $125K-ish, decent areas $50K+)
No extreme weather temperatures high or low
Less congested
Less air polution (unless you go to an industrial city)

Disadvantages:

Snow
Cold
Tornadoes

There's probably more but I can't think right now. :)

I'm not all that far from Andrew.

I would guess that we have the biggest extremes in variations in temps. If you include the windchill/heat indexes, you could be talking 175deg difference from high to low. :/

BUT, in reality, winters will only get as low as around teens generally, and summers 90's generally.

I like it here because there's TREES lol. Lots of pretty landscapes. Hilly but not mountainous, but not flat. Jobs in my county are easy to come by. People are VERY friendly (sometimes nosey). Property and rent is cheap. Here you can buy a modest house in town for $40-$50k. It won't be big, but it won't be a dump.

I'm in northwest missouri.

Average cost of homes vary greatly where I'm at, one city away could be 80,000-100,000, 2 cities away 30,000-80,000/ my neighborhood averages about 150,000-1,000,000+ it depends on how close to the water you want to be!
