I noticed that a lot of you are from, or know a lot about Arizona and I was wondering if I could get a little help on some information about the areas.
Everytime a do a cost-of-living search I only know to compare Phoenix, and every once in a while I'll compare some other city, but I realy know nothing about them.
I'm finding that the cost-of-living is about 9.8% higher than where I am now, which isn't bad at all considering that I'm just outside of Utica,NY.
Are certain cities known for certain things?
I heard that housing costs are rising there and that a house there costs about 40-50% more than around here, but the source telling me this isn't realy reliable.
I'm looking for a nice warm, dry climate; far enough away from a city where I don't have neighbors right next to us but not out in the middle of nowhere.
