I grew up in New England, I am now retired and I am not sure I can afford to move back. I do have a set income for the rest of my days, but where I live now, my home is paid for. I just pay for insurance and low property taxes. It is just me, my dog and my cat. I do not plan on taking very much of what I own to where ever I move to. I hope my children take some of this stuff off my hands.
So, how much would it cost for a one bedroom/one bathroom home/apartment? What are the average costs to pay electric and heating/cooling? Are the taxes still outrageous? Please answer any of these questions, they may determine if I will move back to a place that has four seasons, not just the two I get here, hot and omg hot! lol
