Property taxes are low. I think fifth lowest in US a 25000 house is about 1450. I only have VA And GA as a comparison for utilities but they are lower in general in SC. Employment is on the upswing. I work retail and it's a fight to find and keep good workers because there are so many jobs hiring

Navy Blue Case my question is do you think 85k would be a good income for a family of 4. My wife is a stay a home, homeschooling mom. I am the only income for our fsmily. We currentley live in il and i make more than that now. We just hate it here and or looking south. I know that the cost of living is less there, but does thst really play out in the day to day.
