Hi,

Is it worth relocating to Midland for a job that pays a little less than 80K/year? I don't need a fancy home but want to live in a safe part of town. Your thoughts?

For less than 80k a year?? Hahaha!!!! If you are smart you wouldn't do that! Housing here is ridiculous in cost and that's in bad areas. To live in good areas, even for a more run down and older home you'd be killing yourself paying the rent/mtg. There is a lot more money in this area to be made than that 80k and I wouldn't settle for that salary at the expense of moving here.. I've been here since 2010 and it sucks! That's my honest opinion on that right there lol.

Finding housing will take some shopping around.. 80K a year is decent money. There's lots of areas outside of midland within 45 minutes of downtown that will be cheaper to live in.. Just takes planning..and wise budgeting.. Good luck and Welcome, if u decide to move out here.:-)

Simply put: Don't gamble with it. I have lived here since 86. Oil boom will NOT last. That's how many families have become homeless. Please don't do it!!
