Do you like clouds? - 2/8/2009
While I do love the state of Rhode Island, my affection does not stem from the weather conditions. Before I continue I must say that I enjoy the weather of all four seasons. However, Rhode Island becomes frequently cloudy in the summer, and receives and much rain/ice as it does snow in the winter. With these factors considered I would advice that one should move to Rhode Island if weather is not a major Read More

Housing - 11/28/2008
Rhode Island can be a very expensive place to live. I have lived here all my life and have seen the prices of housing rise greatly. For about 30 years I lived in Washington County (aka South County). I was priced out of the area a few years back and it is now very common to see properties listed in the millions if they are waterfront/waterview.

Rhode Island currently (2008) has the distinction of having the nation's highest unemployment rate and a state economy tht is running a high deficit. If you find yourself in the position of needing to find a job or losing your job the prospects are very bleak indeed.

The high price of living in Rhode Island - 5/3/2008
Rhode Island is a very pretty state with lots of beautiful water ways. Coming from teh San Francisco Bay Area for work I was very excited by the less expensive housing prices. However Rhode Island has a very high tax rate! Property taxes and income taxes are very high. In 4 years our property taxes have gone up consistently and therefore increased our payment added into our mortage from $500 per month to presently $750 per month on a $375,000 house. Food is expensive whether it is in the grocery stores or at a restaurant. There are no $1.00 taco trucks here! It is great to be able to reach everything in the entire state in 45 minutes or less.

When using sperlings comparisons for other locations everything in RI comes up more expensive except housing for all of the locations I am considering which are warmer weather well known locations.

I've realized that all in all moving will be a flat change in overhead expense because what I would be saving in taxes and Read More
