Now There's Your Problem

As they began planning their future together, Ashley Brown and her fiance, Aaron Shuman, concluded that they could no longer remain in Los Angeles because it was getting much too expensive.

"Our rent in L.A. was $1,500 for a tiny, 650-square-foot apartment with no amenities," says Brown, 29, a native New Yorker, actress and New York University graduate. She and Shuman, a 28-year-old musician, began looking at Austin, Detroit, Portland, Oregon, and Columbus, Ohio, before settling on Atlanta.

Brown and Shuman are part of a wave of people migrating from coastal cities to "secondary" cities - drawn by a lower cost of living, lighter tax burden, job growth and a better chance to buy a home they can afford.

Nashville, Sacramento, Atlanta, Phoenix, Austin and Dallas are among the top-10 cities with the largest influx of new residents, according to new data from the Redfin real estate brokerage.

Not surprisingly, high-cost cities from which people are fleeing include San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles and Washington.

The migration also is driven by the Republicans' tax overhaul, which, among other provisions, eliminated the state and local tax deduction for six states with high property taxes: California, Illinois, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Texas.

"If you can't itemize your taxes, you're not getting the tax benefit that offsets your high mortgage-interest payments, which also cuts into affordability," Fairweather said.
And they are bringing their failed socialist values with them.

Save the South. Be mean as Hades to all liberal transplants until they pack up and leave.

“Drawn by lighter tax burdens”

That won’t last when they get here and push their high cost liberal ideas.

That's their plan,,,,
They don't have a plan. They are like a hoard of locusts. Once they have consumed a habitat and destroyed it they move on.

I question how they think ATL is "affordable". If you're a young, struggling "artist" the only way you can afford to live in ATL is to live in a crack house hovel neighborhood that is rampant with crime. You sure aren't going to be able to afford a house in the 'burbs. Wore out dumps in Chamblee are selling at a starting price of $400K. My son and his wife just bought their first home. They had to go out north of Kennesaw to find something they could afford and it's a money pit.

A 1/1 in an ATL high rise apartment building will set you back more than the monthly mortgage payment on a $200K house out in Flowery Branch.

I cant if i want a job.
That's the nature of the bidness you're in. I have to be careful myself in the work environment. Not because of my employees but because of our customers. Outside of that I go out of my way to insult liberals and make them angry.

They could live in the room above the garage in "Little 5 Points", deliver pizza, belong to a failed band, have their parents pay for their cell phone, car and insurance.

They might even call their 80 year old father and 76 year old mother at 3 in the morning to come get the wasps out of their bathroom. Or...When youre on a cruise at the main dress up dinner, call them to let them know your tire is flat and ask them what you should do.

All of the above is true and about my 36 year old brother in law.

Even in Little 5 Points there's only so many rooms over garages and pizza joints. Failed bands are available in the hundreds though.
