West coast is the best coast! Arizona would probably be 4th.

Washington
Pros: low income taxes, economy is probably the best in the country, and outdoors.
Cons: Women are not what you’d hope for. Lack of supply and quality. The constant rain and darkness is like living in a cave.

Oregon
Pros: It’s cheaper than CA or Wa. Outdoors are awesome. It’s not as over crowded, but it’s getting worse.
Cons: high income tax, lack of job opportunities, still dark and rainy, except Bend. Bend has its own weather ☀️ but it’s expensive and zero economy.

California
Pros: better looking women, jobs, weather, opportunity.
Cons: high taxes, too many people, high cost to live, you trade lower quality of living for the weather. Vast majority of state is wasteland and getting worse. A lot of people are leaving for better opportunities to buy houses and better jobs elsewhere. Welfare state, if you are homeless it’s one of the best places to live.

Yep, ugliest people in the world and a lot of it is personality based. It’s bad personalities and unattractive. It’s like the island of misfit toys. I travel a lot, so I’ve got a good baseline. You can pick the worst country on a world map and the people and personalities are an improvement. I didn’t think anyone would dispute it. Women don’t like low quality women either.

Washington (Seattle)
1) Abundance of outdoors activities (hiking, skiing, kayaking, etc)
2) Strong economy, lots of job growth
3) Lots of highly educated, young people
4) Pretty solid food and drinking scene. Not quite on level of NYC or SF, but nothing to sneeze at
5) While CoL has risen and it isn't "cheap", there's a ton of headroom between it and a place like NYC, SF, Boston, etc.. Lot of newer apts which you'll have harder time finding in other places.

You should cover the cons of the area. I haven’t seen the sun in months.

The ward structure is at the root of Chicago’s corruption issues. Giving absolute local authority, including zoning and municipal contract approval, to 50 individuals is a recipe for disaster.

There is no debate.. when it’s a slaughter. CA more things to do than Texas. Doesn’t mean Texas isn’t great. Texas is very cool too and has cheaper cost of living.

To the people who hate California. There’s a reason why California is the most populous state in the country. Doesn’t happen by accident, certainly not because it’s boring like Texas, racist like the Deep South or cold like Alaska. Being the most populous state has its own challenges including people shitting all over it, literally and euphemistically.

Haven’t been in law school for a while and property law went in one ear and out the other. Can anyone advise if a tenant in common can do work to a property (i.e. build a structure) it shares with other TICs without consent from each other owner? Note there would be no expectation of reimbursement for costs and understand the other tenants in common would have access to use this structure. This is a residential area not commercial.
