@Shamrocks2117:  We are transplants that live in Charlotte, NC (he’s from NJ, I’m from CA) and the cost of living here is soooo nice.  In CA I was paying $1600 for a 1 bedroom apartment (ridiculous I know, but it was Orange County).  My mortgage is less than half of that (3bd/2.5ba, 1900 sq ft, single family).  For me, it was totally worth it because we can afford for me to not work (which I LOVE).   

We live in a community with miles of walking trails, parks, golf course, fishing ponds, etc. with our HOA being a little over $50/mo (my mom pays $400-$600/mo out in CA).  My FI has a 15 min (8 mi) commute to work on surface streets and it rarely snows here.  You also have to be careful of what community you move into down here, some do not salt the roads (ours does).  We’re an interracial couple (polish/italian, chinese) and everyone here has always been fine with us.  Feel free to PM me with any questions about Charlotte, NC.
