i ran into an old friend yesterday. she is selling, and moving south. she is tired of the high cost of living around here. her property tax, car insurence, etc, is rediculous. i once believed it was apples to apples, meaning, sure it cost more, but we make more, now i'm not so sure. she is buying a brand new home, in so carolina, for $170,000. you can't get a shack here for that amount. the property taxes will be $1,500. the homeless people here pay more than that. so let me ask you this, in your area, what do things like car insurence, liability ins, property tax cost? what is the cost of a lawn cut? my trucks are commercially insured for $1200 each. my business liability is like $1,000, including pesticide. an average lawn here, is like 4,000 sq feet, and gets mowed for about $28. my property tax on my 110x 100 sq ft lot is $3700 a year.
