Personally I'd say don't bother. Unless you do have a lot of money, and can find a job to back yourself up, than by all means go for it. It's difficult enough finding/making a living here, especially if you're out of state. A lot of people who do move here from the mainland tend to be military.
Average monthly rent for a decent 2 bedroom/1 bath apartment is $1300 (of course there are cheaper places for under $1000, but those tend to be a bit more shabby). A nice brand new 3 bdr/2 bath home can cost upwards of $675,000 (similar homes on the mainland would cost less than half of that!).

Life here is the same as on the mainland, but everything is a bit more relaxed. If you're a newcomer, you'll be in for a treat. If you're like me and lived here all your life, you just wanna get out of here lol.

haha yeah you're probably right. But take into account that the overall wages here are pretty low on average too. If I were to live out on my own with my salary, I'd be eating ramen every day lol.
