    Count your blessings on house prices. It is nothing to spend $300,000 to $500,000 for a basic house now. Fixer-uppers go for $200,000. I expect the prices will go down but there is so little rental accommodation and with low interest, people are buying to have a roof over their heads. Crazy!

    Our 1950’s ranch house is 1400 sq ft and worth 320. It’s in a really desirable neighborhood. In my hometown in Wisconsin it would be 150.

    I see twice as many people are moving to Oregon than are leaving. That doesn't bode well for their housing situation.

    IL has been bleeding people for years. High taxes are given has a primarily reason, especially property taxes.

    Jane, that’s why our housing situation is so bad. Plus the average family here earns 45k for family of 4 so they can’t afford homes.

    I love Vermont--and northern New England generally--at least the scenery. I'd consider moving there, but them's some long, cold winters.

    Cold winters followed by black fly springs.

    You see cold winters and black fly springs, I see this:

    Those photos were in our local paper, but I like this picture of winter, taken from my house. Some will say bleak--I say beautiful.

    Vermont is beautiful. But no way I am ever giving up my mild 4 seasons.

    I checked the map going back to 2013 as there wasn't data for 2012, and I noticed that IL had around 60% to 65% outbound and 30%ish inbound all those years. I'm not surprised. We have been mulling over leaving IL for a while now even though all of our family members live here.
