    I looked at Redding because my girlfriend liked it when she was there a few years ago, but it seems to have exploded with crime and scumbags lately.

    I've lived coast to coast and inbetween. West Coast is where I'm happy, leaving isn't an option.

    Do you think I should? Don't want to take in any air that might have traveled east...

    I do like Henderson NV, but can't talk the lady in to it.

    Cheap homes in Henderson and South Las Vegas. Employment really picking up with a new auto manufacturing plant being built in North Las Vegas; Faraday Future is the name of the plant. Over a billion dollars already in the works to be spent on the plant by Faraday Future. Many smaller companies moving in to support the plant and new homes being built for the employees that will be moving into the area. No personal income taxes in Nevada.
    Bought my home in Seven Hills through propertyvegas.com for a bargin and plenty more out there.
    Your wife might change her mind if you show her the nice affordable homes on propertyvegas and zillow.com
     
    The Block Robert and Dzl210 Thank this.

    Sorry! But even if I didn't drive a truck, I would never live in California

    Some good deals become available for rental property too. A couple months ago there was a 4-plex on the market for $125,000.00 but it was sold pretty fast. It was a fixer-upper but still livable for renters. I thought about it and maybe taking it slow and easy to refurbish one apartment at a time. While I was thinking about it someone else jumped on the deal.

    I might be speaking more with the lady about it. She's a property manager.
