I Find Their Scores Widely Untrue
First of all, the fact that it lists Wilmington as more expensive than Austin is completely untrue. Austin was voted #21 in most expensive cities to live 3 years ago and I would be willing to bet it's probably at #15 now. Wilmington is cheap and definitely much cheaper than Austin. This survey even lists Wilmington utilities as higher than LA, and Austin's as much lower than LA. Austin utilities are much higher than LA, surprisingly. And in Wilmington you can find a better apartment for $300-500 cheaper. You would also pay probably $100,000-300,000 less for a house, on average, of better quality. Also, Wilmington is beautiful and close to a lot of major cities, where, Austin is close to Dallas and Houston, and why would anyone want to go there, other than Texans?
