I'm originally from California and I can tell you that it's much, much easier to buy a house here! (I've been here long enough that a $200,000 house seems expensive!)
You can find nice houses here under 100k! It's actually more expensive to rent here than it is to buy, which is why a lot of investors buy property in Syracuse.

Every May, the Lilacs bloom for 3-4 weeks and it's just beautiful. I took this photo while I was taking pictures of an apartment building. Sometimes I go to buildings that have been abandoned or neglected as part of my job and they will have these wild overgrown gardens and I can tell someone really loved the property at one time and took good care of it. It's kind of bittersweet.
