Will you need to live comfortably in Palo Alto, CA. Have 3 children preschool age. Would you afford to be a SAHM?

$100,000 minimum. Housing is unbelievably expensive there.

 $100K with 3 kids is probably not enough.  It's a VERY expensive area.  My brother rents a room - yes a room - for $1000 a month.

 Because they can get it.  Lots of highly paid employees from all the software companies around there - Facebook, Google, and so on.  When you have a large number of people making well over $100K a year - prices go up.
