Costs of Living

I was a bit depressed to read that IT salaries fell in Seattle last year to sixth-highest nationwide, until I plugged the number into CNN Money’s cost of living calculator, and discovered that $80K goes a lot further in Seattle than even the $93K you’d earn in Silicon Valley.

One reason to be bullish on Seattle’s housing market is that it still has a long way to go to catch up with a lot of other places in America.
