San Jose vs Denver

Jul 30, 2019 12 Comments

Is the decrease in cost of living worth the pay cut involved in moving to Denver? Seems like the former is supposed to be 30% and the latter is 20%. I think the main areas i will see a difference are in rent and in state income taxes (9 to 4%) but I dont pay a lot in rent now (1200).

    Opportunities are less in Denver for tech. Nothing compares to the amount of tech jobs with multiple HQ in bay area

    If you can pay cash for a house in Denver - go for it. Lots of work, good people, great food, awesome weather.

      Nah, should have clarified that. I'm in SF. Denver was in consideration for move. After visits to friends and checking out, racism is not a concern (least not as an East Asian). Lack of good Asian food is a major concern.

      There’s no much traffic it denver.
      Food better in Denver. Great steaks and farmer’s products.
      The cost of living cheaper and you can make there 200+ and live like a king.

      Probably! IMO, Denver ain't ready for rapid population expansion. Same food gets boring, I like variety. YMMV. Great point on the COL, I assumed it's common knowledge.
