IMO, knowing what I know about the Job Market and cost of living in either place (almost nothing), I would not make the switch. Your wife's POTENTIAL pay raise is not enough to offest the ACTUAL cost of living increase.
We Texans don't like canadian's
But if we did, I would tell you to relocate to Dallas-Fort Worth.
Brand new 3,000 sq ft homes, with in-ground pools, 3 car garages and 1/4 acre routinely go for $150-$200,000 USD.
(Kidding about not liking canadians, we US Soldiers have to say that
No we dont, I was kidding again. )
