So the mean average for California looks amazing, big deal. The fact that the median home in San Fran for a single family is at or close to a cool MILLION, that's million with 2 L's. So your $83K a year is a drop in the bucket. If you and your spouse would like your child to go to a good school, crank up the price. Not trying to keep anyone from leaving their home state, just food for thought.

Agree with houst2, it would be more meaningful to conduct a Cost of Living to Wage ratio study in determining the best location. There are websites that will calculate an equivalent wage for where you are living as compared with what you will need to make to maintain that life style in the city you are moving to.

Oakland is nice. My aunt lives there up in the hills of that photo. I thought about going there for years but the thought of a home invasion because of the massive cop layoffs kept me outta there. I can't imagine taking a work van into most of the city and having the wheels still on it when I am done. But working for someone else on a big job would be okay if the commuting didn't give me suicidal tendancies. And where is Seattle on there anyway? Union scale is around $38 and there seems to be lots of construction cranes there at present. Also, I think Redding would be a great places to live, but I've only been there to see the Boat Drags. it sure has my kind of weather: Hot!
