Virginia: One of the Cheapest States to Live! - Roanoke, VA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, April 28, 2017

Honeywood, Roanoke, VACNBC scored all 50 states on more than 60 measures of competitiveness, developed with input from a broad and diverse array of business and policy experts, official government sources, the CNBC Global CFO Council and the states themselves. States receive points based on their rankings in each metric. Then we separate those metrics into 10 broad categories, weighted based on how frequently each is used as a selling point in state economic development marketing materials. That way, our study ranks the states based on the criteria they use to sell themselves.

Cost of living is one of the key categories of competitiveness, worth a possible 75 points toward a state's overall Top States score.

This year some states were tied. But Virginia ranked high on the list .

Roanoke, VA is the Best City in Virginia for Retirement

Roanoke, VA is the Best City in Virginia for Retirement

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 20, 2017

Honeywood Apartments, Roanoke, VAPicking the best place to retire isn't easy. Retirement desires run the gamut, from beach villas to big-city condos, from lakeside cabins to wine-country retreats. In a bid to offer something for everyone, we picked 50 great places to retire—one per state—to ensure a diverse mix of choices.

In selecting a great place to retire in each state, we weighed several factors. Some were financial, such as typical living costs for retirees—health care costs in particular—and taxes. Others involved lifestyle, from the availability of things to do to the number of retirement-age people close by to do things with. We also considered safety and access to quality health care.

Roanoke, VA:

Cost of living for retirees: 8.7% below U.S. average
Share of population 65+: 14.3%
Virginia 's tax rating for retirees: Mixed
Lifetime health care costs for a retired couple: Below average at $388,548

Take a hike. Really. Retiring in Roanoke, between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny mountains, provides outdoorsy types with more than 600 miles of nearby trails. For the less actively inclined, you can still enjoy the views with a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Or sample tastes from the wide selection of local breweries and wineries.

Retiree living costs look just as good, falling below average in every category. Housing-related expenses for retired residents typically run 11.7% below the national average. Across all ages, the median home value in the city is $134,700, far less than the $244,600 median for the state.

Virginia: One of the Best States To Retire – Roanoke, VA

Virginia: One of the Best States To Retire – Roanoke, VA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 06, 2017

Honeywood, Roanoke, VAMany of us long for a retirement that will feel like going on a permanent vacation. But before we buy that beach bungalow, box up our stuff and break out the Costco-sized wine spritzers, a reality check may be in order.

Bankrate’s latest ranking of the best and worst states to retire finds the fun-in-the-sun places often associated with retirement may have drawbacks as we face aging issues and our savings dwindle. Retiree meccas like Florida and Arizona don’t come close to cracking our top 10.

#6. Virginia

Many do want to retire somewhere else - It’s no myth that many people dream of moving in retirement. A new Bankrate survey shows that 47% of Americans would consider relocating when they retire. Higher-earning households and younger people are more likely to say so than everyone else.

According to our poll, Americans’ priorities for a retirement haven suggest they’re giving a lot of thought to practical considerations like cost of living and health care.

How we rate the states

To rank the states according to what people say they want in retirement, we pull together data on these eight criteria:

  • Cost of living
  • Healthcare quality
  • Crime
  • Cultural vitality
  • Weather
  • Taxes
  • Senior citizens’ overall well-being
  • The prevalence of other seniors

Two of our categories are new: cultural vitality (whether residents can find fun stuff to do) and the prevalence of other seniors (whether it would be easy to find other retirees to hang out with).

We weight the factors based on the importance they were given in our survey.
