Default Where would you move

If you had between $1m-$2m where would you move?
Montana, Missouri, Colorado, somewhere else in Texas, etc

And why

Texas because I’m a Texan. I’ve lived in other places and other countries. Texas is home.

Where in Texas? That’s a hard one. I love the hill country, where I grew up. Especially the Marble Falls area but the land west of Ft. Worth, around the Stephenville area is really some nice land.

I would definitely have my ranch, that’s for sure.

Somewhere with a tough climate. Northern Montana, Idaho, Alaska. When people are busting their butts to survive they don’t have time for a lot of foolishness. I can visit the beach, but if some knucklehead wants to drive up the side of a mountain to explain some new law, the entire time questioning the entire time whether he’ll be able to make it back down, I wanna make sure he works for it.

I used to live in Montana but man the winters are sometimes too long and bitter cold. Vacations up there or just spending the summers when they’re not having heat waves or droughts would be more tolerable.

Have same feelings about Colorado as the member above said. Too many changes there now.

I'd pay off our place north of Wimberley. Put 1.6 million in an interst bearing account. Retire at 53. We'd have 80,000 a year for 20 years. No mortgage payment.

Believe it or not they pay teachers pretty well in the oil patch (comparatively). Also, some places I'd like to live don't have as good school programs. Just need to get one more out of the house and then we can start looking harder.

I think I'd take the money and split it. Summer home in Idaho and Winter home/ranch in WTX or STX.

Idaho - somewhere between Idaho Falls & West Yellowstone.

Lots of work class fly fishing within a 60 mile radius. Pretty dang good skiing close enough for day trips. Lots of good hunting. Summers are tolerable. I don’t mind the cold.

I live in Michigan but spend a lot of time here in Texas and New Mexico. I would live in Michigan but buy a place in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I love hunting artifacts as much as hunting deer. Can't get on any land here in Texas but the ranchers welcome us in New Mexico.

Wasn’t the question. If the proceeds came from the sale of another property and instead of paying taxes on proceeds you 1031 on another piece of property. Now where do you move 😁

I’d buy a place in Matagorda and a place in Port Mansfield or Port Isabel. I got saltwater running through my veins though. If you like to look at mountains and freeze your ball sack off the mountains may be for you. I’ve been all over the west, have a bunch of family in SW Montana. Not a single place I’d live other than the Texas coast.

If I somehow came across a couple mil, I'd Clear off my measly little 2.5 acres and build a nicer house. If I don't get rich which will probably be the case as I'm retired and don't play the lotto, I'll still stay here. Been on this little piece of dirt for 43 yrs, it's mine and I wanna live out my life here.

No taxes. Not income. It's my money.

80,000 a year is 1500 a week with no mortgage payment or rent. Lol. Plus if I gotta move that means I'd sell this place. There is another 200,000.

My wife will get SS in 4 years. Me too in 12. Also 7 years after that, at 72, this place might bring another million.

Easy.

Agree 100% - Give me $80k somewhere without a mortgage and I'm golden.

I don't think I'd stay here if I came across a lump sum like that. It would be a move to a moderate climate all year round. Probably Costa Rica, or something like it.

Buy a beach shack and an RV to keep at my kids when I come back and visit them all for a few months at a time.
