I am looking to relocate the first of the year. I am wondering how the housing market as well as the job market is doing in these areas.
I figured I will begin my search with suggestions made and
go from there. Should I land a job, this would be ideal.
We are planning to put our current home on the market Oct 31st.
We will be staying with friends and wish to go from there once
our home is sold. Here are the areas on our wish list. Would appreciate any info and will reward the information with an interview on your work.
2.) New Orleans
New Orleans - below sea level and subject to hurricanes and flooding. Housing is sparse and expensive.
Arizona - beautiful however expensive and get ready to speak spanish
Nevada - brown with no color, expensive to live
You need to get on sites like Indeed.com to see if there are any jobs related to your searches. A lot of companies will give you over the phone interviews. Good luck in your search and move. It's not going to be easy in the current economy.
Thought I'd point out that two of those places are cities whilst three are states. Also, the states are all in the West or Southwest.
Now, I'm an Aussie who's never visited the USA. However, as a person who abhorrs long, cold, wet winters, I'd be giving Chigo as miss. As for New Orleans... Well, they did experience Hurricane Katrina. They are in the tornado belt, I believe, and its probably as humid as hell down there.
Nevada - maybe, Arizona, maybe. My pick would be California. It's not by accident that it's the most populated state. But it is a big state. Yep, California would be my choice. Though I would take a look a those other two states first, just in case. Might be something there just right for you.
1. Chicago - a large metro with many jobs and good logistics to others cities in the east and midwest
central time zone so your day starts ahead of west coast, It's very nice if you have a few clients out west and good for eastern clients. Yes, it is cold and windy in winter but you get used to it.
2. New Orleans - a gulf state city, very humid summers, we know all about weather events, but a beautiful city. I lived in FLA and liked the drive through New Orleans and that TALL, TALL bridge.
3. Arizona - for me, a west coaster, it is absolutely the hottest and driest place I have ever experienced. Many people got dry skin problems/ chapping and premature skin wrinkling, get ready. I didn't get dry skin but everything in the newer home had a spark when I or others touched it (due to dryness) ...a static electricity thing residents get used to?? (same thing in Vegas homes). Nice stores and people, with no lawns...If you like desert brown landscaped neighborhoods then it is for you. I like green and big fluffy trees.
4. California - Some of the highest taxes paid in the country, gas expensive, traffic. The weather is somewhat constant but can have dry heatwaves like Vegas and Phoenix, along with bad smog (bad air quality). State Politics? nuff said.
5. Nevada - cheap and affordable like Phoenix. There's no real difference except winters feel cooler than Arizona and it is more glamorous in certain areas.
If you can take the dry heat & shortfall on green, then the southwest is fine as their is abundant shopping but you gotta make good money to live nicely in California otherwise you will be 60 miles from the coast and living in a desert just like AZ or NV. Chicago I have never been to but we know they everything that a big city has.

After researching movies coming out next year, I found one that sounds kind of funny that I think some people will enjoy. The movie is essentially about these guys that always get in trouble with their wives for checking out hot girls...IN FRONT OF THEM TOO! Anyways, their wives decide...

Why do so many people buy or build houses in flood prone areas?In SoCal we have a problem with huge mudslides in areas prone to flooding. It happens usually right after a forest fire, which is a regular problem here. Yet developers keep building and people keep moving into areas where they're...

Based on the following map, why is Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada the blue oasis surrounded by a sea of red crimson. Would anyone care to speculate as to why these states are politically different from their surrounding sisters? http://www.electoral-vote.com/evp2012/P … Sep07.html
