I teach on Long Island and I am considering leaving because of the price of housing. A fixer upper/starter house (small bungalow or cottage) in the community where I grew up costs more than $300,000. I am thinking about relocating. Can you tell me about the housing and job situation in your community. I would like to know about the availability of jobs, the salaries and the costs of housing. What kind of quality of life do you have? Can you live on what you earn in your community?
