I live in Pennsylvania and am thinking about retirement. We already are part owners of a lovely townhome in florida (inheritance) and I was toying of the idea of the villages but my wife just doesnt love florida. I know I would prefer a warmer climate then Penn. Some seasonal change and oh of course east coast - two kids one starting college next year. We pay over $7 grand in property taxes so I think I can do better and the master is on the second floor.

NC, SC Ga ? where to go can anyone provide a suggestion?

There are lots of choices, depending on your circumstances. http://money.usnews.com/money/retirement/best-places-to-retire might be a good place to start. Have a list of "must-haves," find a few places that fit those criteria, then talk things over with your wife.

If you are going on retirement and you are hard pressed financially moving to a town with living costs is definitely an option. I would advice you to go to homes.yahoo.com. They have some real estate lisitngs. You could use this to locate areas where rent or the prices of good homes are the lowest. You would also want to track your savings. You could do this using yahoo finance or you could use personal finance software. I use Boachsoft Finance 2012.

I'm a fan of the coast of SC. Never been to the NC coast but I'm sure it's nice.

I believe that after retirement, it will be a better option to move into a lower cost locale. This is mainly because at that time, you will not have a steady income. If you are planning to work part-time after retirement, then it will be better to choose a place where the unemployment rate is low and the economy is growing.

I currently live in NC, and when I go toward the coast, I can often imagine a retirement life there. Check out North Carolina's Crystal coast or Outer Banks.

I'm from Orlando, FL and my wife from Hawaii, she's not a fan of FL living either.
