After doing their homework, Gayle and Bob are leaving California for Reno
I have been a life long resident of Orange County and I never thought I would ever think I want to leave the state. But after living here for over 50 years and seeing what is becoming of this beautiful state, my husband and I knew it was time to leave. With the state income tax, property taxes, sales tax, gas tax, the traffic, etc, enough was enough. The real question was where to move to. We had simple requirements. We didn't want to go to a state that had a state income tax. This takes the states from 50 to 7. We wanted a climate that was as close to California as possible. This eliminated Texas, North Dakota, Tennessee, Wyoming, Florida and Alaska. This left only Nevada to consider which led us to consider Reno. We wanted a large airport so we can travel. Check for Reno. We wanted a good healthcare system - Check for Reno. We wanted low sales tax and property tax: Check and check. We wanted low cost housing. Check for being able to purchase a new home for half the cost of our existing home and almost over 1,000 sq ft bigger. The list goes on and on, but what my husband and I wanted was what California was 50 years ago, and we found it in Reno. Come join us you will be so happy you did.
