SF Bay Area to Medium CoL Denver/SLC/Portland

Nov 22, 2019 12 Comments

We might need a bigger place and any 4bed+ SFH in Bay Area in a good neighborhood within reasonable commuting distance is $2.5M+. On looking up SLC area, Denver, can get nice big home for ~$800k.

Both SWEs. ~35 yrs old

TC: ~$300k, household ~$450k

Anybody here made the move with family? How was your experience? Work locally or remotely?

    Which area in the bay area?

    You can afford $2M with your household TC...

    Houses in South Bay are more affordable

      I own ~$2M home. But it’s small and old.

    If you choose to go to the greater Denver area, try to avoid the areas with plutonium :/

      Look up the rocky flats contamination. There are houses being built right next to or right on top of possibly contaminated areas. Personally not comfortable with it.
