Like the SF Bay Area but on a smaller scale, here in the Seattle area it couldn't get much better but as a result there is a definite housing shortage. New homes are being built all over, if you have a million to spend or don't mind a really long commute. The same with new high rise apartments, many being built but at $3,000/rent. The diversity of our major employers has made it a lot more stable now, with not only Boeing and Microsoft, but also Amazon, Costco, Weyerhaueser, Expedia, and several bio-techs.

Like most cities that claim low unemployment - lots of entry level and minimum wage jobs.

Pretty good in Indianapolis, but it's not a very desirable place to live.

I know this is going to come as a shocker for some people, but the DC area did not experience much of a recession.

It's been pretty much steady as she goes for the last 10 years, except that real estate prices took a hit. That's about it.

Pretty good; tons of tech startups, and there are many corporations headquartered in STL or have branches here. Kind of tough to find entry-level roles though, but I imagine that's happening all over the country
