Have you ever wondered what a certain dollar amount will buy you in certain cities? We have all heard of particular cities where living expenses are much much higher than where we live. If you live in the suburbs in a single family home you may often compare what you pay to what others pay to be in the city, and many times, those that live in the city are paying much more than what you do on rent or your mortgage and they are getting significantly less. I thought this blog post was extremely interesting comparing top US cities and what you can rent for $800 a month.
