This Mississippi city will pa you $6,000 to move there for a year

Need a change of scenery? If you're waiting for a sign, here it is: a Mississippi city will pay you $6,000 to pick up and move there for a year.

 The city of Natchez is calling on remote workers across the country to relocate to their "charming and historic community" for one year through a program called Shift South. And in return, they will provide $2,500 in moving expenses plus a $300 monthly stipend for one year, the city's mayor, Dan Gibson told CNN.

Natchez, which has a population of nearly 15,000 people and is located along the Mississippi River, has a significantly lower cost of living than the national average, according to Gibson.

And a quick Zillow search will back that up. According to the site, the median home in Natchez is $96,000, far less than the US average which is more than $250,000.

Gibson says he expects to see a return on investment within the next two years given that there will be an increase in property and sales taxes.
