    Did you look on Craigslist for the area you want to be in? Usually lots of rental properties on there.

    Washington State has no state income tax, and the sales tax is 7.9 % or mor with the new year. They tax just about everything! Idaho has a state sales tax of about 5-6%, and does have a state income tax. Idaho ends up being much less expensive, according to people I know who live there.
    Always have a good attitude, don't cut corners, and go with your instincts.

    Not always. When we moved from Minnesota to Nevada, we lost the income tax (8.5%), our property taxes went down by roughly half on properties valued about the same, and our sales tax was the same at 6.5%. Sales taxes have since gone up slightly in both states but are still about the same.

    The gasoline taxes and auto registration fees are higher in Nevada, but that is nowhere near making up for the state income taxes or property taxes. Property taxes are also capped in Nevada, so they can only raise them by a small amount, not big double-digit increases, and any new taxes need a 2/3 supermajority in the legislature, so taxes tend to remain stable.

    The weather is way better here in western Nevada (no, I wouldn't live in Las Vegas, too hot), so energy costs are a lot lower on an annualized basis as well compared to Minnesota.
