I need help! My husband and I are considering moving to the Frisco,CO area (near Breckenridge) but we have looked at the cost of living there and it is crazy. He has his BSN and I am an LVN finishing up on my BSN. Houses, food, gas, and basically everything is so much more expensive there. What we were wondering is if the nursing income makes up for cost of living. I have been looking at jobs there but none list the salary. His income now is avg 68,000 a year and that is the low end and I am not working. Our house only cost us 65,000 for 3BR, 2 BA brick. So from what I am seeing is that the avg house up there costs 250,000-450,000. Is that right? Please help. We don't want to make the wrong decision.
We live in TX now. Thanks!
my friend bought a house on petero hill, 1300 sqft and 900,000. It's a fixer-upper. They've had to replace so much, and not because they didn't like the way it looks, but because of things breaking. Needless to say, they're getting a little ticked.
I also have a friend who is a nurse, and her pay dosn't make up for the cost of living when it comes to buying a house. Figure this, I saw this on MSN a while back. Only 12% of the San Fran pop can afford a home, compared with 75% in Vegas and our average home price is 250,000 and rising. (which is VERY cheap BTW)
