      if you dont want too hot, you dont want southern and northern California, Texas, or Arizona

      if you dont want too cold, you dont want states in the northern USA, near Canada, the nearer you are to Canada, the colder it is.

      if you like almost tropical climate, consider southern USA like Florida, Alabama, North/South Carolina

      these are just suggestions though basing on my reading and what i know

        I disagree - Southern California would be perfect - San Diego really has the best climate and it's not too hot in the summer, nor too cold in the winter.

        On the other hand, Florida is very hot in the summer, yet not too cold in the winter.

        Having lived in both places I can definitely say that San Diego has the better climate.

      You are looking for nirvana!  But I would suggest Portland, Oregon is you want beautiful, San Diego if you want perfect weather, and Redding CA falls somewhere in between.  Good Luck!

      Also, if you like people and living as part of a multigenerational community, states like Oregon and California have cohousing communities to buy into.

      I think Tennessee is a beautiful place. Texas is better financially because there is no state tax. Homes are less expensive and jobs are more readily available, but it's HOT here in the summer. It takes getting use to, but you know when your use to it, 100 is warm, 80 is cool and the 60's is downright cold.

    ..i'm canadian...but i've travelled extensively through the US...i keep being drawn back to Arizona and Utah - beautiful states...as matter of fact - all of the states are beautiful...most states are hot in the summer...in parts of Arizona - the winters are not harsh...travelled through Southern Arizona on my motorcycle in the winter - it was great!...i must do that again soon...guess it depends on the activities you enjoy to!

      We live in Arizona in the winter...people that live there year around tend to visit the White Mountains in northern Arizona to cool off.  In Tucson the Catalina Mountains provide a wonderful respite with a short drive.

      I have a great uncle who winters in Arizona and spend the rest of the year in Oregon. I've been through Arizona in the summer so hot that my tennis shoes started to melt to the pavement while I was getting gas.

    There are a lot of nice places around the US so it all depends on what you are looking for. Coast? Mountain? Dry? Humid? City? Country? and there are more.
    Be a little more precise please so that we can help.

    NOT in Massachusetts, for any number of reasons.  A lot of people in Massachusetts would leave if they didn't have family living here.  Massachusetts is an expensive, disgusting, poorly run, little state; and "mediocrity", "incompetence", and "corruption" pretty much sum it up.  On top of all that, it's one of the most expensive states to live in, so people spend/pay more for all the "wonderfulness" of this state.  Oh - throw in an out-of-control, arrogant, government that disregards the US Constitution, as if it never existed.   

    Other than that, I have no strong opinions on this disgusting, disgusting, little state.    lol  (I added the laugh for my last remark here.  I'm dead serious about the rest of it.)

      how come you put up with it then?

    That definitely depends on your definition of too hot/too cold. Right now Wyoming is a pretty good place to buy because property prices and taxes are low, unemployment rates are considerably lower than in other states, no state income taxes, cost of living is one of the cheapest, etc...however, there's a reason they try so hard to attract people here. Most of the state is semi-arid desert, temps range in the 80s and 90s all summer with the occasional jumps, around 20 to -10 in the winter with the occasional drop. There is very little spring or fall, though we LOVE those when they show up.

    To repeat what was said above:  The further north, or closer to Canada, will be colder in the winter.  The further south, or closer to Mexico, the hotter/warmer all year long, and a lack of snow during the winter.

    I've always wanted to live in Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado or (southern) Wyoming.  The photos I've seen show beautiful scenery, the desert states would have no snow during winter, and I believe all these states would have a drier climate which would bring less humidity.

    Mid-US states, where I wouldn't mind living, would be Nebraska, Kansas, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Missouri or Arkansas.  I believe these states would have mild winters and are fairly close to centrally located.

    You need to provide a lot more information to get an answer out of me, start by answering these questions:

    1. What is your budget?
    2. How many bedrooms will you require?
    3. Do you require a home near to an international airport?
    4. Do you mind clearing snow off of your drive in the winter?
    5. Do you have children?
    6. Do you intend to live in this home permanently or use it as a holiday home?
    7. Quiet, loud, or a bit of both?
    8. Any particular hobbies that you like to pursue? e.g. surfing?

    There are 50 states in America, and every one will have desirable locations. Not all be able to offer a property at a price to suit both your budget and your aspirations, assuming that your budget is relatively modest.

    I would love to live in Las Vegas, New York, or Los Angeles. All great in principle but I don't want to live in a studio flat, and preferably not within a neighbourhood controlled by low level crack dealers and gang wars. The result is a completely unviable dream.

    If I wanted a good quality of life, with a slow pace, but close enough to the action, with 3 bedrooms, 2 garages, a swimming pool, somewhere to surf, and zero chance of having to clear snow from my drive, then I would choose Florida.

    Florida would perhaps be too hot for you though?

    Last night one of my clients stated that home prices were at this time at a historical low in the US - all over.

    I have to disagree - wait until the children are back in school - make an offer after September and before Christmas.

    Do pick the perfect climate and enjoy!

    Best wishes to you!

    I also prefer for California Texas, or Arizona. But before buying a house you should know about your home contractor. Most likely you will need to hire professional home contractors. Before doing it, get facts along with fair and balanced ratings from other home owners.

    I suggest Arkansas. Not only is housing very, very affordable, but it's within 1-12 hours of almost anything:

    Ozark Mountains in the NW.
    Drive south to the Gulf in 1 day.
    Diamond Dig site at Murfreesboro.
      Historic Old Washington & many other historical places.
    Great year-round temperatures....the further north you go, the  less humid it will be in hot months.

    Real estate is cheap. It is a beautiful state with flat lands, to rolling hills, to mountains.  Plenty of fishing & sports activities everywhere. 

    Hot Springs!

    Look it up!

    According to me, Florida is the best place if weather is taken as a significant factor .In Florida,the Orlando is a cool place by the means of weather. This place is also very nice and peaceful. so you should move to Florida' s Orlando area.
