I realize you all are busy and I don't want to burden you more.
Also, if this question is in the wrong place, sorry about that.
Or, been asked before, a million times, sorry about that as well.
Can you just sum up what the outcome of previous threads were?
For future searchers? Thanks. Otherwise...

What are some steps I can take to find out a real cost of living comparison
between a few metro areas I'm looking at? Thanks.

Not even sure if this is possible.
Thanks anyways.

From the home page, go into a state, then pick a city from that state. At the bottom of that page (which will be FULL of very interesting demographics and facts) you will find a cost of living calculator where you can put in another city for comparison.

Another handy comparison is to pick a national grocery chain or two and look at weekly ads using zip codes. Look at local utility company rates too.
