"Located in low overhead Monroe, WA" This was a
reference to cheap property values, which are rapidly escalating. One of my lots 1/3 acre
was purchased in 1991 for $6000.00 The average
lot values for this size now are 45-55,000.00
Its still cheaper to live here than Seattle, WA
where the average house is in the $230,000 range.
We are rapidly approaching the average price of
$190,000 in Monroe.
The real question is can we afford to retire
within 250 miles of any metropolitan area.
