you guys are young though - I don't think my husband hit 6 fiigs until he was 30 - and anyone else that wonders the cost of living up here in the Boston area is nearly as outrageous as around San Jose/Santa Clara - most homes in my town go for $500k (though i admit most are sickeningly over large in that price range)

Teaching Assistant... I'm in the lowest range there. However, tuition gets paid for me so I make more in benefits than in salary/stipend, so it's all good. Run this poll again once I get done with grad school

CPA...working for the Federal Government as an auditor...not insanely large amounts of $$, but then again I don't do any work, so I guess you could say I am seriously overpaid for what I do.

System Architect / Group Leader (what a stupid title!!!)

Low 90s. My base is 87 and change, then I get a LITTLE bit of commission, which is why I can't give a more exact amount.

Pretty good money, especially here in Cleveland where cost of living is reasonable.

Glad to see that the current economy hasn't affected some people's ability to earn lots of money...

Yeah, I don't blame you; I'd leave too if it was only $42...

My mom has a three bedroom ranch on the north side of Chicago. Her and my dad built that house in the late seventies. It has a finished basement and I think the total sq. ft. is about 1,500. Well, homes in her subdivision are going for $350K-400K! This is for a relatively small house, but it's in a desireable section of Chicago.

I live about 35 miles north of her and I have a five bedroom home (2,600 sq.ft.), on a bigger lot and it was just appraised (I'm refinancing) and was appraised at around $320K, although her property taxes are much lower than mine.

You definitely get less for your money in the city of Chicago, but then again, you're closer to everything, and as I said, property taxes are cheaper.

It's all a trade-off.

Those prices sound decent compared to the NY area. Most 3 BR houses in Northern NJ close to NYC go for close to 500k I have a feeling it will only get worse too

*snip*
we just sealed a rate on refinancing - we'll find out this week the approximate value of our house

it cost about $184k to build 1600 sq feet? on 1 1/2 acres 26 miles from Boston in an "exclusive" (read whitey ) town about 12 yrs ago - our guy is guessing $290k our friends tell us we could get over $300 easy but we couldn't afford a bigger house in town I don't think
