If you are considering moving your family from Texas to California, there are a few issues with money that you will definitely need to consider beforehand. You don't want to rush into such a large decision, so ensure that you have plenty of funds for a good life in California before you actually decide to move there. Here are some things that you ought to consider before deciding to move your whole family out to California:

• The topic of rent

Rent in California, or the price of a house to purchase, is much higher than for those in Texas. The cost of living in general is much higher for those wishing to live in California. If you want to see if your funds can afford to live in California, check out websites like, or to see if you can afford the rent for a nice home in a nice location in California. If you can't get a job in California, don't even bother attempting to move. You need to be in a stable job with a stable home environment before you seriously contemplate the move.

• The actual cost

Give that your financial background isn't provided with this question, it is difficult to say whether you would be able to survive in your move to California. It has been said that to buy a house in California, it's going to be incredibly costly, with a median price of around $300,000 in Southern California. This, along with the fact that gas prices and the general cost of living is much more steep over there, may result in you going hungry and losing a lot of weight upon your move to California.

• Do your research

Get in touch with people in the know about making a move across states. They will be able to help you find the cheapest alternatives to the ridiculous prices that you will encounter for moving. This will probably be your only hope in moving to California, unless you have a considerable amount of income flowing in.

I can't tell you exactly how much money you need for moving. In case you are going to buy a house, I can suggest you checking as this marketplace can provide you with information about real estate in every corner of the world. So, you can find out the price of the house you live in now and a house you are going to buy. I guess, this is a main amount of money that should be taken into account when moving.
