My home town of San Diego is basically $100K. One reason I moved here. Insane.

I loved San Diego when I was stationed at Camp Pendleton. When I got out, I contemplated staying there, but then I realized I would have been living in my car.

I didn't read the whole thing to see "how" you could live in those cities on the suggested salary. But for our family of 4, there's no way we could live in Denver off $60K. We're closer to 3 times that, and live fairly middle class.

Since the recession ended in June 2009, median prices of residential property have surpassed pre-recession and recession levels (Jan 2005 through June 2009) in 53 counties, representing 19% of the 274 counties with a population of 200,000 or more where sufficient home price data is available.

New home price peaks were reached in the last two years in 28 counties, representing 10% of the total 274 counties analyzed, and seven counties reached new home price peaks in April 2014: San Francisco County, Calif.; Travis County, Texas in the Austin metro area; Jefferson County, Colo., in the Denver metro area; Marion County, Ind., in the Indianapolis metro area; Weld County,
Colo., in the Greeley metro area northeast of Denver; Brazoria County, Texas in the Houston metro area; and Norfolk City, Va., in the Virginia Beach metro area.

Counties where the post-recession median home price peak is furthest above the pre-recession/recession median home price peak included Denver County, Colo. (up 16.6%), District of Columbia (up 14.5%), Arlington, Va., (up 12.6%), San Francisco County, Calif. (up 11.8%), New York County, N.Y. (up 11.1%), and Oklahoma County, Oklahoma (up 10.2%). “We are starting to
exceed pre-recession levels in all categories of the market in Oklahoma,” said Sheldon Detrick, CEO of Prudential Detrick/Alliance Realty, covering the Oklahoma City and Tulsa, Okla. markets. “Home value appreciation continues to rise despite a continued lack
of available inventory.”

Default Want to live downtown?

Downtown Denver’s condo market is now dominated by resale homes, not ones being sold by developers.
That is a sea change from a few years go, when condo towers such as Four Seasons and the Spire were having trouble finding buyers because of the economic turmoil that led to the largest national and local housing crash since the Great Depression of 1929.
Now, demand is far-outstripping the meager supply of downtown condos.

Aren't there a fair number of condos going up around Union Station? Nothing like the Spire or 4S, but there's a lot of construction going on. I read that a 32 or 34 story apartment tower is suposed to go up in that area soon as well. Did One Lincoln Park finally fill up?
