Whether you’re moving to New York City or Boise, Idaho for a new job, it’s important to calculate what your job offer translates into local dollars before you make a final decision or negotiate your salary. A $50,000 paycheck in one city may be equal to earning $10,000 in another city simply based on one number: the cost of housing.
Even if you’re getting a better title or job description, it may simply not add up financially to a promotion in real terms when you calculate housing costs.
In Appleton, WI, for example, $214,900 buys you a 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom house with 1981 square feet on a 0.38 acre lot.
