I think I'd try to stay in my current home, but I'd remodel it.

    Well if I won the Mega Millions jackpot, I'd probably buy a house in my hometown to be near my family and have another home in a place of my choosing. ;-)

        I'd stay in my current home, do a little remodeling. I think to maintain a little normalcy would protest the anonymity that I will calm my prize under. People will certainly start to ask questions and come calling for handouts when they see you start to spend spend spend.

          I would move to Dallas because I like that town better because it has more things to do.

            Yes, I would go back to Las Vegas where I lived for 7 yrs before moving to Delaware! My home state of Calif. has nothing to offer me, that's why I left it in 1994 for Las Vegas, besides when I left Calif. I vowed to never live there again!

              I'll move back to my hometown of Plant City, Florida. But I'll also buy an apartment in New York.

                I would stay in my home town.  (After I graduate college of course)

                How are you going to win if you don't play?

                  I think you would have to win a lottery just to buy a house in my town.

                    I'd definitely stay in Harrogate, but move to the wealthiest area, on the west side (there's a gorgeous house currently for sale there, £750,000 - I'd buy that for my mother).

                      I voted "I'd move out of state," assuming that "won the lottery" means a PowerBall or MegaMillions size jackpot.   However, my vote would change depending on the size of the "jackpot."

                      If I won the the Kentucky Cash Ball, a $200k+ Fantasy 5 or a Florida Mega Money jackpot, I would stay in my current home home, pay off my mortgage and other bills, and do some remodeling. And keep my day job.

                      If I won a $5M or $10M Lotto South jackpot, I'd move out of town. I'd set up a trust fund and quit my day job.

                      If I won $20M or more, I'd set up a trust fund and move out of state.

                        i'd stay in my current home for a while, and eventually maybe move out (when the parents kick me out.).

                        I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                          I would at least try to move to another state.

                            I have it planned: 1. buy a new home in Chattanooga area. 2. Brownstone in the Lincoln Park district of Chicago. 3. Mansion in Palm Beach Florida.  4. An island in the Carribean.  That is when I win big money.Hyper

                              I definately will stay in Concord or move to Pleasanton, Hayward, Fremont, or Tracy, CA to buy a house if I win a jackpot. I take cash value if I win the jackpot.
