  •  I've lived in San Francisco before (0+ / 0-)

    Statements that its expensive everywhere are a bit overblown, especially considering you can get good deals on shared rooms and go to other districts in San Francisco for deals.

    The areas where it's not cheap in San Francisco are predominately in SoMa, Nob Hill, Downtown SF, Mission Bay, North Beach, Russian Hill, Cow Hollow, Marina and Pacific Heights.  Elsewhere, the prices aren't as pricey.

    •  Shared rooms are not an option when you have a (0+ / 0-)

      •  Then that's a different situation (0+ / 0-)

        In that aspect, it is definitely more competitive in your situation.

        Outer Sunset and Outer Richmond apartments are easier for pricing for families but it also depends on where you look.

        •  I'm thinking more like Oregon, but Idaho, Montana, (0+ / 0-)

          New Mexico and some others are interesting as well.

          For that matter, we've checked on some Florida rentals and are amazed to find rents much cheaper than rents here, and beaches within walking distance.

          Nice -- and I believe that Florida has no state income tax.
          That's 5 per-cent off the top right there.

          When competition constrains your ability to earn, it's nice to keep costs down.
