What would you need to make to live in another city?
 
Found this to be pretty awesome to look at. Take your current salary where you live and see what you would need to make to live the same way in a different city.

Interesting.

I'd have to make a lot more in most places since things here in Texas are pretty cheap. I NEVER WANT TO MOVE TO CALI - EVER

Yea I live in Phoenix so not much gets cheaper than that either. Except Salina, Kansas. ROFL

Look at the NY cities. Wowzer.

I'll enjoy Texas with a giant house, low crime, and no state income tax

If I ever move from Phoenix, it would be to Austin. No doubt about it. Probably the only place in Texas I would live.

Forget rent and taxes, even stuff like the price of food in DC and NY is ridiculous compared to other places. 12 eggs cost like $3.

Have you ever been to Hawaii? $7 loaves of normal cheap bread FTW.

WTF. Cost of importing or something?

Almost everything has to be shipped there...

I'm sure it is. Anything that spoils quickly will probably cost a lot there. The normal grocery stores there were insane on bread and milk. Some of the other stuff, like cereal, was somewhat normal priced.

Everything at the Costco there cost the same as it does here in Texas though.

For me to move from central Mo to Las Vegas:


Price difference in Las Vegas, NV
Groceries 10% more
Housing 11% more
Utilities 6% less
Transportation 5% more
Health Care 10% more

That's it? Seriously?

$#it must be getting real in LV right now...

But was your comparable salary less like mine was? Prices rise but my salary shrinks? No thanks.

Frazod 02-11-2013 08:58 AM

Everywhere I'd like to move is between 20-25% cheaper, but sadly I'd probably take about a 50% salary hit, thereby completely negating the cost-of-living benefits. :(

I recently read about cheap housing in Vegas. Also, I saw a House Hunters episode about Vegas and the prices were much more reasonable than I expected.
