We aren't west, but the cost of living is reasonable here in the U.P. You only get grass for five months a year though. If your husband likes to do snowplowing in the winter, this is the place to be.
We do have hospitals here in the U.P. Wildlife runs in front of you all the time when you are driving. It eats your garden and mows your weeds. I have a yard full of weeds. Most people like grass here though.

There is grass all over Phoenix... I have to mow mine today. There is a ton of landscaping opportunity here. All of these palms, and flowering shrubs and bushes and stuff need constant attention. Gravel maintenance and weeds are a big opportunity too, as well as irrigation if your husband is handy with that sort of thing. I've lived all over the country, and like AZ the best, right next to N.C. /The weather is awesome, although I may be somewhat jaded by growing up in MI with its crappy winters.
