Actually this thread is very helpful for comparison . What it tells me is now that my house is paid for a LCOL or MCOL location will not necessarily decrease what I spend on taxes and insurance. So unless I need access to the large equity in my home there is no point in selling and moving to parts unknown.

Housing costs depends on where you choose to live in retirement.
