What locations are considered the most inexpensive to live in the U.S.?

Asked by Evelyn_475 (787points) August 31st, 2010

I am considering relocating. I currently live in southern California. I like green, open areas with enough to do to keep me entertained. (I don’t want to live in the middle of “Lala Land” where no one can hear me scream but I don’t want to live in the city where skyscrapers block the sun and all that you’ll see on the ground in concrete)

Depends on your income. The odds of finding a job in advertising are pretty slim in Norman, Oklahoma. If you are on a fixed income I would look at Detroit.

Interesting thing to consider:

Live in a high rent town for a long time, buy a home, etc.

Years later you can move to almost anywhere and it’ll seem cheap.

The reverse ain’t true, though. It can be tough to climb the property ladder when you’re starting at the very bottom.

Interesting. I see some nice places there. Fort Collins for example.

I’ve lived in (and left) three of the top 100. They were OK.

San Antonio Texas is a great city. Great culture, great food and restaurants, economy is comparatively good compared to most major cities, cost of living is inexpensive, job market is very good (lots of military bases and IT companies moving in here. Alots of greenery (beautiful hill country), 2 hours away from the coast, 30–45 mins from Austin, 2½ hours from Houston, 3 major lakes and rivers, Sea World, Six Flags, The Alamo, Riverwalk, Good Nightlife, and the best damn puffy tacos in the US. I moved here from SoCal about 4 years ago and have not regretted it. Population wise it is decent close to 2 million so not too big but not too small.
