Drove to a small town about an hour away from where I live to see the houses/check out the neighborhood.
It was awesome. We found homes that would be worth 400k where we currently live, sell for around 250k. Very quiet neighborhood and a lot of great Churches that we hope to visit in the future. Great schools and friendly people. It amazed me to see kids walking downtown at night without seeing them causing trouble or making a scene since there is absolutely no night life.
The only downside I see to living there is that it will probably be very, very boring.
