Also filed under "its a small world"... there is a girl I worked with for about a year in Atlanta who moved to the Bay Area about a decade ago- she recently transferred to our Denver office. But she has been amused with how cheap things are in Denver. Said its unreal that you can even get lunch for less than $10 Bucks! Said like milk is around $7/ Gallon there?

I believe it. it's between 4 and 6 here.

I do think for two people making $117K in most metro areas is not really a lot of money anymore. One person making that is a slightly different story

I paid almost 300 :12:

 

Come to Michigan.  I sold my last house for under $40/sq foot, and bought the new one for under $100/sq foot (which includes 25 acres of land.)  Though if you don't include the finished walkout basement it's closer to $150/sq foot.

But then she'd have to live in Michigan.

Sure it's cold in winter, but it frees up cash flow for travel to warm places!

Had to do some digging, but here in Auckland you'll need ~$110k USD ($145k NZD) for the median house.
