I had a job oppurtunity come up through my current employer in So-Cal. I miss the weather a lot and have been considering taking the job. The best part of all is that the job is a substantial pay raise from what I make now and puts me right on the brink of 6 figures.
I decided to start cruising craigslist and a few of the MLS sights. The house prices have come down substantially and I assumed the cost to rent a home would have come down substantially as well. Boy was I wrong. 1750 seems to be the going rate for an ok place in the IE. 2200+ if you want somewhere fairly nice.
How in the heck are most people making it out there? Pulling down close to 100k a year And paying 1750 seems like a stretch. I know that most people out there don't make any where close to that.
