I’m in a similiar situation but in the reverse. I’m comfortable where I am (maybe too comfortable) but there are virtually no opportunities for making money in RE, creative or otherwise.
I think it all depends on how you feel about the situation. If you really hate where you are, then it isn’t worth staying, no matter the opportunities because you won’t be happy. There are of course places you could go where the opportunities are still good, but you like the area more.
If you don’t hate where you are, then I don’t see any reason not to become familiar with the business, not to mention add to your coffers, in an area you already know.
If you ultimately want cashflow (that is the road to wealth and financial freedom) then why not do some flips and rehabs in your area which will give you more money to buy more MHs or whatever, in the new area once you get there.
I don’t know if this was hopeful, but that’s my say
