How high is your cost of living where you are?

In Seattle it's so expensive to rent or buy. This is an example (link below) of how ridiculous it is. How is it where you are? Would you ever rent a space this small? lol

  • average house in my city is 550,000 but thats for a smaller house, the bigger ones just sky rocket from there

    rent ranges from 700 for really small to 1900 for pretty nice sized apartment

    if you want to rent a house you might wanna think again
