I thought living in CA was pricey but Hawaii and DC..
Fixed.lol. PA is definitely an "identity crisis" state where it's in the north but outside of the 3 main metro areas, you'd think you were in the south or midwest.Outside of Philly, Harrisburg, and Pittsburgh, PA is essentially a Southern type state.
Why is Colorado so expensive?
Yeah man, it’s getting tougher every year here in Cali. I too know a high school friend who moved to Colorado with his wife and child. She does office work and he got work as a prison guard. I figure they’ll be fine.I know bunch of people who dipped from SD and LA because it just wasn't reasonable at all. A few of them went to the Denver area.
Ain't much goin on in PA... It's cheap place to live if you want to close to NYC area. I know dudes that drive 2+ hours each way for work just to pay 1000 a month on a mortgage... 20 hours a week driving to save bread is still time consuming and draining...dudes be happy and mad at the same time...Didn’t realize the cost of living was so cheap in PA. I wonder what the catch is. Texas will nickel and dime the hell out of you.

I know for a fact that I would need triple of that in order to afford a quality home in Pittsburgh that wasn't built during WWII
Apartment I lived in around 2004-2005 was like $1400/month. Same spot now is $4000. And I'm talking 10th floor 2 bedroom 1 bathroom joint where you could smell your neighbor's dinner.Philly got mad affordable homes. certain parts are expensive like rittenhouse sq or something but there is A LOT of new construction that is dumb affordable.
MA I'm not surprised, Boston area is worst in NE next to nyc. but going west in MA, for example, home values tank. especially outside 495. but all the biotech and healthcare around Boston area, so the jobs are more concentrated there. but homes really exceed the salaries that are being paid for a lotta people.
when u start living with wildlife in ya backyard, and you ain't got streetlights, and there..isn't much to do. home is cheap. broadly speaking..
