Asked by David Fixedincome, Chicago, IL Wed Oct 29, 2008

I am retired and live on a fixed income of 30K per year. Where is the BEST place for me to live? I can either rent or own. My downpayment would be around 25-40K your thoughts! Chicago winters are too harsh and I need to relocate somewhere temperate. Thanks.

Good time to look. Prices and interest rates are down; good inventory available in your price range.

Hi David - I live in Charleston, SC and love it here. Moved down from Virginia to North Carolina and now South Carolina. We have great weather...a little chilly in the winter but no snow which is great. If you would like my free relocation package, just let me know and I will send it your way. You can go to my website and click for it. Thanks, Randall Sandin, 843-209-9667

I honestly can't tell you where to live. Are you thinking of moving out of State?

There are so many good deals out there and maybe you can find a nice condo for yourself. Florida, right now, is probably the hardest hit State, when it comes to a low price range market. I would suggest that you get approved for a loan, then do some research on where you might want to live. If you're a veteran, then a VA loan might work best. That way you can keep the cash in your pocket, or invest it.

There are many options and opportunities out there.
