Hey, I was just wondering if anyone else was in NC? I just moved here and know no one! I am from NY and this is very... different for me. I saw cows here.

NYC was way more exciting than this place, but thanks! Cows are awesome looking. Farms are interesting. I didn't know there were still farms in the USA.

I live in a small city. While it's expanding and i don't typically think of it as being -too- small, I'm always entirely overwhelmed when I visit Toronto. A huge metropolis like that almost makes me anxious. I can't really imagine living in NYC, but I bet (like Toronto) there was always something going on which is pretty neat. What was the reason for the move?

NYC and the surrounding areas are extremely overpriced areas to live in. Renting a studio apartment with no washer/dryer or dishwasher (which is how I was living) was $1,300/monthly. Houses and taxes are even more ridiculous.

NC is growing fast while still maintaining a low housing market. I now own a home, make more than I did in NY. I also have a washer/dryer and a dishwasher in my house!

Man, that's nuts. The prices are about the same here in Southern Ontario, so I know that feeling for sure. I'm glad you found a spot you like!

I was VERY interested in living in the Vancouver area, unfortunately my husband didn't think the job market for his field was good there and he said the housing was as expensive as New York.

Yeah, it definitely is in Vancouver. There's apparently a large problem over there (And it's getting to be the same way here) where wealthy investors buy property sight unseen so they go in way over asking prices to secure the purchase. It seems to be driving up prices and making it damn near impossible to find a reasonable place to live, even rent wise.

Wow, that's awful. Real estate investment is a good way to make money and Vancouver is a great place to live, which is probably why that area was targeted for that.
