The cost of living is also 9% lower than the national average, according to RentCafe.

We have found that the best time to move in is the spring or fall. With a fall move, you may be able to get a better deal on a move on or after Sept. 1. If you move during the spring, it’s highly likely you may get a deal on your move because moving demand is low. Winter is the cheapest time of year to move but also poses the most risk for unfavorable weather conditions.
