How much would it take to move from SEA to the Bay?
Looking at joining Google in MTV, but I'm not sure where the line is that makes it worthwhile. TC in Seattle is 220k, and I've determined that I'd need 250k in CA to take home the equivalent. However since COL is so much higher (housing is double) I figure it's more like 280k (+30%) just to stay even.
There's also the fact that I would have to sell my house which is always a pain. I feel like even a minor net gain (e.g. 40%) might not be worth it.
Edit: it's an L6 non-tech position so I know comp wouldn't be bad, just not sure how high I should be shooting.
