      For example, if the single most important thing to you is being able to live in a giant house, you’re unlikely to come out ahead in the Bay Area. If you’d be living in an apartment, the cost of living difference isn’t quite so high.

      Okay Bay Area that big of a house is anywhere from 1.5 to 3 million+ if you wanna be 25 mins from work. 25 mins commute is probably a 3 to 5 mile radius from work. Property tax is about 1.2% of the property value. Renting that big of a house is at least 6k or so. I am not sure on the rent now since I haven’t rented for years so it could be higher. So you can work backwards from there. You would be really poor with $120k.

      You’ll also have to pay 7.5% towards state income tax

      Based on this it’d need like a 1M salary. The house would be 2-3M. That’s funny. 2500 sq ft house!! Homes here are built in the 60’s and are 1200 sq ft!

    You won’t have the same standard of living, period. If you want to live in a 2 bed apartment close to work and still put the same away in savings, i would say you need roughly 200k in SV or 175k in SEA.

    Living in Memphis is dirt cheap bro. 120k is a fuck ton of money in this town.
