    well over 300k, housing in even the most expensive areas of la jolla/del mar are so much cheaper. Tbh, I'd stay in the bay unless you have a family/kids

      Are you saying 200k in Bay Area is >300k in San Diego ? Or is it the other way ? My question was how much 200k in Bay Area is equivalent to in San Diego?

      I see you aren’t familiar with the median price of La Jolla SFHs. Not that one SWE salary is enough for one of those...

      San Diego limits your career aspirations but you live a more balanced life

    It's not like taxes/insurance/gas will be cheaper. It is the same state, it isn't Texas. So I would say 200k in SF is like 180k in San Diego.

    Bay Area is generally 50-80% higher salary while COL is 20-50%.. SD is expensive because it attracts a lot of retirees and military who get a housing stipend..

    I own a home in Bay Area. The plan is to rent it out , move to SD for a couple of years and then go from there.
