Hi Everyone,

I have read some of the posts on this forum and am starting to wonder if I would
be mad to consider a potential job in Calabasas. There are my two young children 7 and 9 my wife and I. Looks like I would have to rent but where would be an affordable area. I am hearing that you need like $150K to live. What kind of salaries are being offered in the best high tech jobs?
I have many more questions to ask but I'll start here for now.

Regards

NJ

You'll need $150k/yr if you want to buy a house, buy a new car from time to time, save for retirement, save for your kids' college, and take vacations. The killer is the housing price. If you're content to rent forever, you'll do fine on 1/2-2/3 of that.
