Example of How the Cost of Rent in San Francisco Is Insane

EconomicPolicyJournal.com posted this article pertaining to how rent is out of control in San Francisco. Take a look at this breakdown from Realtor.com:

The average rent for a one-bedroom in San Francisco is $3,123 per month; a two-bedroom in Vegas is only $1,012. Flights between these two cities cost an average of $70 round trip. So if you could swing a four-day workweek, your commute by air would cost only $1,120 per month, the Reddit user calculated, plus around $276 traveling to and from the airport.

So that means Vegas living will run you around $2,408, saving you $715 compared to San Francisco. Plus, the Reddit user estimated you’d save around $409 per month skirting the tech capital’s exorbitant living expenses— $10 coffee, $20 cocktails in some cases—and ultimately sock away $1,124 per month. That’s for atwo-bedroom in Vegas rather just one in S.F., so you’ll have tons of space and just a nicer lifestyle all around. What’s not to love about that?
