#Barnes on Mar 26, 2014 :
Here in Nova Scotia Canada we are the highest taxed province in the country.
-
The provincial tax is 15% no exceptions,except kids clothes which is 5%.
A loaf of bread is anywhere between 2.19 and 4.19
The cost of gas is currently 1.38 a litre.
The average cost of housing is 365,000.
The min wage is 10.00
The average cost of internet and phone(landline),cable are 185.00 a month.
The flat rate for a taxi is 40.00.
A 2 bedroom apt is 800 including nothing.Unless you want to live in an area of high crime,we have cheaper areas to live.

I think its time to move to Florida where the weather is warmer.
These prices are not in the city,they are outside of the city.
Living in the city costs alot more.

Florda is a great place to live lived aroubnd Panama CIty and Eglan AFB for 15 years.

Orlando is right next to Kissimmee which is closer to World Disney, yet cheaper housing such s rent from $700 a month to 1200 for 4 bedrooms and houses under $180,000 brand new and large. Although employment here for low income individuals is about $11 an hour in world Disney such as bus drivers, the cost of living here is better than NYC where I am originally from. And there are no state taxes here coming out of your check. Think I am incorrect, search "Cost if living comparisons and input your city compare to Orlando which is more expensive than Kissimmee and verify what I am stating.

If you get a job offer here, then you are ahead of the game and can enjoy life in Orlando. It's hot almost all the time. If you like that, it's great. Pools, lakes, and air conditioners are everywhere. If you don't like the heat... visit between November to February instead. Life downtown, Lake Nona, most of East Orlando are comfortable. It's not a fast paced big city, but you are a short plane ride from other places and a quick drive from the beach. If you prefer to live west of downtown, then it's safer live somewhere like Celebration or west of Disney. Prices are low for basics in Orlando and there are low wages for unskilled workers, but if you work in software, medical, or are advanced in your field, you can buy a home for very little. New houses, new neighborhoods have houses in the high 300k.
#Meli on Sep 02, 2013 :
Hello
I am From arabic country and i got job offer in Orlando Fl, exactly in ( Metrocenter Blvd ) so i want to have idea please about this place and which place it we be good for living and finding sharing accommodation... what do you advise me ? Thanks a lot
#sylvia on Jul 27, 2013 :
Very low salaries, no jobs, very expensive food, very high utilities cost, you have to pay even to drive on their Freeways and horrible weather, please make your studies if you are planning to move TO ORLANDO or central Fl. NO FUN AT ALL!!
#L.L. on Jul 14, 2013 :
To add to Michael Adam's comment of "relatively low wages": Wages here are ABYSMALLY low and the job market is terrible. My husband who has extensive experience (even foreign and in a very highly rated restaurant) is working for only a few dollars above min. wage. Most jobs only pay between minimum and 12/hr. With the rent here being comparable to larger cities with more job opportunities, better weather and people, better quality of life, the wages should be much higher. In Orlando you get the big-city prices without the amenities a big city has to offer. In addition "cultural events" here are a joke. If you're planning to relocate to Orlando, think carefully!
#David Lane on Apr 20, 2013 :
Costs are less in cities like Winter Haven FL 45 minutes west of Orlando off I-4 and yet you are less than an hour from all the attractions and shopping and dining Orlando has to offer. Best to look outside of Orlando for economical living.
#Michael Adams on Mar 05, 2013 :
Utility costs are accounted for by heavy use of A/C. Expect to spend a lot on gas and tolls to get around: the freeways and streets are some of the most congested in the country. Wages are relatively low as well.

Regarding the gas station quip, gas stations next to airport or Disney jack up prices to feed off the tourists. Overseas, gas is heavily taxed: the folks here are hoping the non-locals fail to realize our lack of gas taxes.
#Avery on Apr 15, 2012 :
One gas station in Orlando is a rip-off. The station's name is Suncoast Energy. The gallon of gas cost $5.89 there or $1.56/liter. It isn't even signed. Consumers won't even noticed until they pump the gas. And then, consumers give f**king gesture to Suncoast Energy!
