Wow – money goes a long way in San Antonio!

I’m doing some research (no, I am not moving anywhere) and I used the CNN money tool to run the various costs of living for some “tech towns”.

It is amazing how expensive some areas are.  Considering that San Antonio is the seventh largest city in the country (larger than Dallas, or San Diego, for example), our cost of living has really remained manageable.

I’m also looking specifically into housing costs – comparing my current home to equivalent homes in each of the cities below.  That is taking a bit longer, but I hope to turn it into a future post.

If you are a tech geek, and want to make your money buy a bit more (or even a hell of a lot more!) you should consider San Antonio – we’ve got room for you (room you can afford!)

  3. Rob, you got a link to that tool?

  4. wow…wonder how Washington DC compares? I know from the tax assessor that my condo is now valued $40K less than when I bought it 18 months ago. I can’t afford to move now~
