With LOW cost of living, LOW property taxes, LOW homeowners insurance why not consider North Alabama

It seems like a no brainer to me. There is sooo much house availible for the money. Plus the Southern hospitality and climate. Why would people not be coming in droves?

Patti, some people just don't want to admit they might be wrong. You know from experience that all anyone has do is to come and check us out here, and they fall in love with our area---it's beautiful rivers and lakes, forests, famous sports, fishing and golfing tournaments, lot's of historical places and events year 'round, and everything else it has to offer. I've traveled over most of the US, and there's NO WHERE ELSE I'D  RATHER LIVE. How about you? We have the best weather, most diversity of activities, and some of the best universities and campuses, besides the things you mentioned. What more could a person want? That's why we're  getting so many retirees down here---they love it!!  And our town didn't just build 5 new chain motels for nothing, did we? If we're not so popular, then what in the world did we need with that many more than we already have? Some people just need to open their eyes to new possibilities.

I am still convinced that folks should not knock it until they have tried it. Northwest Alabama has some of the friendliest people in the world. Southern Hospitalty is still alive and well.The lakes and rivers are exceptional for boating, fishing and recreation. We have always had a stigma that we are not highly educated and do not have beautiful property to offer. This is a total misconception.The university in my hometown hosts students from more than 62 countries. It is a clean and beautiful campus.Where else in the world can some one find a new 4 bedroom, 2 bath brick home w/ an office that has GRANITE for $148,900. Insurance approximately $550.00 per year and property taxes about $600.00 per year. Concerning climate, there can be some warm summer weather BUT we are not up to our eyeballs in snow in the winter either. I have had the honor to work with clients from New Hampshire, Florida, Michigan, New York etc... and we all feel like it is a wonderful secret. I do not know why WETDAWGS has a problem w/ the obesity rate in our state. Is that really a factor in a move? Maybe its the sweet tea and cornbread!

Intolerable weather during several months of the summer.

No jobs that match our areas of expertise. 

Many deterrents to the outdoor activities that are the mainstay of our non-working lives.

High poverty.  #2 state in the US for obesity - so health care crises are looming.

On average, Low educational attainment.

There is a lot more to make a community attractive to my family than the things you mentioned.

How about low income to boot....you have to have some incoome to even afford the low cost of living. I bet you for people living there it does not seem all that low though.
