My sister who is working in Macau has planned to relocate either in Canada, London or US, depending on the opportunity that will come her way. Her contract at the clinic spa will expire this year and I'm not sure whether she will sign up for another contract or not. No definite plans yet.
Well, I’m sharing this because if ever she will be relocated to work in the US and will have the opportunity to choose what state she will be in, I will suggest to her to reside in North Carolina and lease one of the luxurious NC Apartments there. I haven't been in any US state or know someone living in the area. But I've come to admire the place through the pictures that I saw on the Internet. The neighborhood seems spotless.
Apartments in North Carolina are spacious, big enough to raise her young kids. If her salary is high enough to buy any of the North Carolina Apartments , I might suggest to her to lease out the portion of the property and earn from its rental (if that is allowed in the US). Their place will also serve as our vacation house just in case my dream to win the lottery will come true. Remember my dream travel destination that I wrote in my other site (tourisme Paris)? The US will be our next stop. :)
