Cost of living link?
« on: June 08, 2016, 05:24:03 PM »
I'm trying to find a link I saw around here not too long ago but I can't remember what thread it was on. It was to a website that had cost of living numbers for different metropolitan areas, including the taxes and I think average wage and average housing cost. I tried doing a google search of the forums but I'm probably not using the right search terms. Does that sound at all familiar?

I've used these before.  The first provides a comparison between two areas, the second breaks down an "average" budget in a city.  Not sure if this is what you're looking for.

Hey thanks :-)  That second link was super helpful.  I'm trying to build a budget/model for expenses as related to a potential home purchase.
