      It should be obvious.
      Best would mean low crime, good weather, things to do, etc.

        The only thing that's objective in that statement is crime rates. Again, you absolute fricking moron, what is it you're looking for? What do YOU like to do? What kind of weather do YOU like? Do YOU have autism?

        What’s “good weather” to you? What “things” do you want to do?

        The lowest-cost states have a) much less of the stuff I personally value and/or b) worse stuff in general. Poor people either can’t afford a lot of the stuff I want and/or they don’t want it in the first place. For example, I don’t personally want to shop only at Costco, or worse yet, at Walmart. I want at least some excellent local restaurants. I don’t want to live somewhere without local musicians, or that touring bands never visit. So I am happy to spend more for what I consider a higher quality of life.

        I’m also not automatically troubled by crime rates as a general rule; I don’t want to feel like I’m in danger, obviously, but just because a place statistically has more crime doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily coming for me personally. Most kinds of crime aren’t that hard to avoid.

        I say all this to preface my suggestion that I had a pretty good life and spent the least money I’ve ever spent on housing, eating, and being entertained (while still having at least decent options for all of the above) when I lived for a few years in Durham, North Carolina. Crime stats aren’t great on paper, but I never had incidents or felt unsafe. And it’s not as cheap as many other places, but it’s still not much more than half as expensive as any of the major cities that are worth a damn (cheaper bigger places exist but I don’t like most of them). And the weather was for me hotter and stickier than I like during the summers, but there are four noticeable seasons, which many people seem to seek out.

        if you are renting the property tax doesn't apply and above a certain income threshold sales tax doesn't put a dent in you compared to 4-10% flat income tax. if you make six figs as a remote worker, it behooves you to live in an income tax free state, if just on paper.

          if you are making 6 figures why are you renting and not buying property?

            >if you are making 6 figures why are you renting and not buying property?
            maybe because the fed caused everything to end up overpriced, such that it's bad value even if you can technically make a monthly payment on it?
            Also, let's retire the term "six figures".
            $100k is very different than $250k/year. the former would not be a good income for a mortage in HCOL america.

            gonna get the HUSTLE AND BUSTLE copy pasta for this but I don't have a car and live in a studio in the city. i don't have a family, i don't NEED a house at the moment. this minimalist lifestyle i lead is significantly cheaper than the trappings of a mortgage. i just stuff dough into a brokerage account and wander the earth. yeah i guess at some point when i can buy a fixer upper straight cash and renovate it as an investment, i'll buy some property.

      Texas and Florida also don't have income taxes. There's another one, but I can't think of it off the top of my head.

      Not as much as you think. Nashville is in an extreme housing development boom and land itself is at a premium. If you look about an hour out of the city you can probably find affordable housing but its going to need a lot of work.

    I like Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire. Absolutely wonderful states and you can find super cheap rents just outside any city. I like driving so I don't mind a 15 or 20 minute trip. My old apartment 25 minutes out from Burlington Vermont was only $800. 800sqft 1 bedroom in a nice little wooded area. Nothing but happy white people. Of course, as you enter burlington you'll see a few minorities but lmao they're all miserable and obviously not compatible with white areas.

      I live in NH and though I agree that all 3 states are wonderful places to live, they aren't great for cost of living.

      Rent in NH's urban areas (Merrimack Valley, entire Seacoast) is ridiculous right now (Like $1500+ for 1 bedroom apartments) and outside that it isn't exactly cheap either. Same with Maine south of and around Portland and mid-coast. I'm sure much of VT is pretty cheap but lots of rural VT is kind of run-down. Interior Maine is absolutely dirt-cheap but there's frick all to do and you'll be surrounded by tweakers and fentanyl all the time.

    You can rent a nice 2 bed 2 bath house in St George Utah for $1300/month. Very low crime. You'd be close to vegas, a bunch of great national parks and state parks and great skiing. They have fantastic weather for 9 months of the year

    Cons
    The summers are definitely hot.
    Most people are Mormon
    There isnt much culture
    nightlife sucks

    +1 for Nashville.
    Awesome nightlife
    Awesome parks and hiking
    The crime is much lower than a lot of the nearby major cities
    Rent for a 2bed 2 bath house would be around $1700 as well
    The people are very nice
    There are a lot of nearby cities to explore (Louisville, Chattanooga, atlanta, memphis)
    The food is god-tier southern cooking and BBQ

    Cons
    7 hours to the beach
    It rains quite a bit
    Some of the cheaper neighborhoods are sketch

      Like Cape May South Jersey or Camden South Jersey? Because Cape May is not cheap and Camden is not worth whatever it costs.

    Everywhere is expensive as frick dude. I converted to full-time remote in 2020 and planned to travel around, but for the last 3 years I’ve done almost no traveling. I simply don’t get paid enough to afford to live out of hotels and AirBnBs.

      The cost of transporting stuff there I believe is a lot of it, other than tourism I know that’s why a ton of stuff is more expensive in Hawaii

    Okie here. It is extremely quiet and extremely cheap here but "things to do" might be an issue. Although, I guess that really depends on the person. Dating scene is also horrendous, if that's important to you at all.

    Best based on only the price or what anon? Price is probably West Virginia but who wants to live in West Virginia? I’ve gone there though and there’s always cheap places for rent in rural towns. It depends on if you require a city or not really as well
