Depends on what the costs of living on average is down there, are you going to be all on your own and all by yourself or will you be staying with friends, family, relatives, etc?
If you have relatives and friends that you count on and trust that you can stay with for a while down there then you may not need lots of money. It's always about having good connections when finding jobs these days. If you have a good and trustworthy friend or a group of friends or professional contacts that knows any good and available positions at a company that you are qualified for then you have a much better chance of getting even a phone call or phone interview after applying for the position and then from there you have a better chance to get interviewed, and depending on how things go you still have a better chance of getting hired at that company. Especially if your connection to your friends or relatives have really good and valuable positions within that company and can be your reference and give you a good recommendation to their boss or employer.
Otherwise it can get difficult, unless you have lots of work experience in many different types of jobs and/or have some really outstanding, rare, or unique much needed and highly in-demand experience and skills that really stand out from almost all other applicants.
Find out what are the most commonly open and available job positions that are available in that region of the state and what their qualification requirements are. If you know you will meet most of those requirements then it shouldn't be that difficult to at least get some interviews or call backs after applying to them.0
