Title: Need a cheap place to retire
Post by: BC on February 18, 2016, 07:02:09 PM

No options, I will be forced to move when I retire. I'm living in a stupidly expensive city where the avg house price is over a million. Good job, but can't get ahead. Nothing holding me here so I could leave now and go to any country. Like to hear your thoughts.

Hi BC and welcome to CryptoMoms.

There are a lot of things to consider when considering a move like that, and not knowing more about your desired lifestyle, makes it tough to narrow a place down. Do you prefer city life, small town living, or life on a beach? Do you require all the modern amenities we have all grown accustomed to? Will you need to work at all, or is this total retirement? For me, safety as well as the stability of a country would be a huge issue.

This article list some of the most affordable places to live in the world, but the recommendations would be for those who more adventurous.

Judging by some of the places on the list, keep in mind that these are cheap places to retire, NOT necessarily great places to retire.  ;)

There's a semi-abandoned blue-gum plantation opposite me. If you took cash to the company that owns it, you'd get it cheap. About a thousand acres, with dams. To the south, fifty miles to the next dwelling.
