I loved my seven years there, but that was 29 years ago. I am sure it has changed a lot!
@ joeswine - Exposing my ignorance once again but is NJ also a place many people want to escape from once they retire? Never occurred to me to be that way.
These have changed some but not a lot. I know Illinois is #7 now, for example. Still high!
Here we go, a link to 2019 figures.
Very much so, I've watch my customers move South over the past 20 years , anywhere south or southwest. Tax's here are the highest in the country ( real a state ) that is.gasoline not that far behind.. and yet housing values in the southern part of this state are stagnant.
Never say never..... Plans to build may have come to a screeching halt! Our agent just showed us a house that meets pretty much every Check on our list and at a really nice price. We're going to make an offer tomorrow A.M. A couple of pics from the zillow web site. It has a walk out below that has approx 150 sq. feet already enclosed and air-conditioned and then another 3 or 4 hundred sq. ft. that can be set up however I Like. Patio/Deck is around 300 square feet, completely covered and an awesome view of the red rocks. Wish us luck, I'm guessing this will have many offers. (it's the house with the tan roof)
Good luck Mike! Is that in Cottonwood still or closer to Sedona? Corner lot to boot!
Still in Cottonwood but Northern section closer to where we rent now. Much greener and a little higher than our original lot.
Tossed and turned all night, excited and anxious at the same time. Guess we wait now.
Outstanding view, love Arizona . Especially Sedona.
Looks like we're not homeless anymore! Multiple offers but ours was selected at list price (slightly less than other offers) because we were so well qualified. Actually put all the equity from the CA house as the down and only had to borrow a small amount to avoid touching savings. Scheduled to close mid September but might be a lot sooner, hope hope hope. Anyone want to buy a lot, I'll throw in testing reports and custom designed house prints and materials quotes.
Congrats! Looks like there is room for a few rows of grapes on the east side of the property. You still thinking about planting any vines at this point?
Nice work!! Nothing wrong with getting out of the house building effort, looks like you guys have a great place!!!!!
Congratulations! You won't have to mow that yard, either!
Thanks all, I appreciate all the support and I'm honestly not feeling let down about not building in the least. We are planning on tearing out all the carpet and putting down hardwood and also replacing all the kitchen cabinets so we can install our new appliances before moving in. Look forward to showing that part off once we get there in a few weeks. Mike
Way to go, building new is exciting but always more work than expected.
Can I have your sign
Congratulations. Nothing like putting down roots.
