I can tell you OC rents are probably more than LA unless you live in Anaheim.
While trying not to get into politics here I cant believe all the rules and regulations and high fees for everything.

Nope. They'll just find other things to whine about it.
But then they can whine over on that state forum, where we don't have to read it.

Instead I'm going to talk about my 20% raise I got last week. In addition my boss also is going to give me a supplemental bonus mid year through which should bring my bonus this year up to 45% of my base salary. In addition my wife is getting offers for her to actually start practicing and people are crawling all over her. I wouldn't be surprised if she gets a 100K signing bonus.

Man it really must suck for you if you're so poor that even notice things like 50 dollar registration increases.
You mean y'all have to work?? I feel sorry for you. I retired @ 49

Then quit electing those who love regulation, high taxes, and big gov. Oh, and gov telling you exactly what you can and can't do. You have to get into politics. It's CA politicians who love that stuff.

We are moving back because of my husband's job. We really need to be in LA for this reason, although we miss the weather and food scene in LA compared to the Midwest. Luckily we have a combined high salary well into the six figures and have negotiated several thousands of rent reimbursement in addition to compensation- this makes it feasible for us. The prices really aren't much different when your coming from an affluent neighborhood in the Midwest excluding the home ownership part- which is really what were talking about! In Indianapolis our car registration fees are similarly high, theres a 2% beverage tax on top of the 7% sales, county use taxes, etc. All of this and finding a nice home in an affluent area with access to restaurants beyond Applebees will still cost one around 700K mortgage wise. The same desirability is found all over LA in our case whereas here it's so much more limited to only a few neighborhoods. Obviously there are much cheaper options comparatively versus California for home ownership. I'm looking forward to returning to California where in January I can expect a normal day to be 61 degrees or so even if little sun and mostly cloudy skies- In Indiana, and much of the Midwest U.S. winter is long and gloomy with extended periods in the 20s and 30s if not the teens. For some, it begins to kill the soul, especially given all the dead and shriveled vegetation and flat landscape that accentuates the grayness above. For some, like me, this limits the quality of life points. I think lifestyle in LA is an important point too; If you need expensive weekends, luxury housing, have a family (we don't) high end cars, and daily happy hours your costs are going to be higher anywhere you live, Midwest included. Coming from one desirable area in the South or Midwest to the LA area is going to cost more in LA rent versus Midwest/South cost to own, but in the end it's not like the desirable areas in the South or Midwest are some bargain, especially considering compensation and professional demand- they are still 'expensive' even though not LA expensive.
