Yikes! We'll NEVER make it! The cost of living where we're at is insanely high and yet the job market is extremely poor. There are very few jobs available here - we used to be a large factory oriented area, but all but maybe one or two have been bought out for overseas.

The housing in surrounding counties is considerably lower...I think we're all scratching our heads as to why housing is so expensive here. Rent on tiny apartments here is more than many of you have listed as mortgage payments. Eek!! Everything is overpriced, houses, gas, etc. I don't know how the town survives except that we do have a large retirement crowd - many of whom are very wealthy from stocks and 401k programs of a big-time company that used to have it's headquarters here.
