I wonder what my house washer and dryer runs me every time. There's the gas for the water heater, electricity and gas for the dryer. I could do the math or look it up i guess - anyone know rough figures for extra capacity 6-7 year old kenmores?

prices are per month. About 10 cents a load if you did laundry every single day

Don't get me wrong, if you wanted to get a place in midtown or say central park west, you're paying 6k for a 2 bedroom a month. But let's be sure we are comparing the same sizes here. A two bedroom apartment in NYC is about 900sqft, usually a bit lower. If you were to find 4-5k sqft apartment in NY? Holy fuck I don't want to think of the price

Yeah, I was going to mention about the size they must be up there lol.

Insane that cost of living is so off the wall in some places. As it has been mentioned in a few threads.

Down here in South Carolina, if you make over 34k a year, you're a god if you don't have kids or child support. Houses with 2k sq feet are around 120k or so.
For around what I am assuming you make, you could afford to live on Daniel Island. This is where most famous people have vacation houses. Oprah, Brett Farve, Micheal Jordan etc....

Rent is almost pointless because of house payments being cheaper than rent is for a house here. Apartments are around 500-1k here depending. Even by the beach they are only 1800-3k/month for a nice 1500 sq ft right on the sand condo.

Those style of condo's have a laundry team. You put it in a bag, drop it in a shoot and it will be dropped by your door step. Gated, armed guards etc....

You have a lot of stereotypes here. Rednecks etc....country boys with jacked up trucks listening to lil wayne.

Weather is humid as fuck 90% of the time. The summers are hot as hell, winters get around 40-70 deg F, its always a hit or miss, cold or hot is choices for winter, hot, or death for summer.

Aside from that, not much, crime is pretty low where I live (Summerville, SC population 37k or so).

Car prices are high(er) than Fla/Ga. And during summer most people are on vacation, so traffic is kinda bad.


I guess that's about my only gripe. Aside from that you have these kinda houses:

This is an example of affordable Daniel Island:
http://charleston.craigslist.org/reb/2495243468.html

Pricey side of DI:
http://charleston.craigslist.org/reb/2449353205.html

http://charleston.craigslist.org/reb/2474367794.html



But where I live, this is what you can get:

While true, there's always a tradeoff. Neither my wife nor myself would make as much in non-city areas. 6 in one place, half a dozen in the other I suppose. Oprah makes bank no matter where she lives

Agreed. However in some cases you would still be ahead of the bunch lol.

To put into perspective I guess. The local jail here had a huge lay off because a nurse who was supposed to be taking blood from an inmate had sex0rz with said inmate. So they are looking for a lot of positions.

They are hiring a warden making 102k a year. That to me, is most likely someone making 300-500k up in NYC living in one of those places you talked about in Central Park.....

I would prefer SC over NC......most SC locals do as well. And even more so NC'ers enjoy it here more so than there.

Plus NC gets hit with all the hurricanes, we have not had a bad once in Hugo in 89'

Try working on her house. Its just retarded man. When she finally ordered Comcast Cable, it was 5 techs, 2 maintenance techs, and 3 supervisors......was a clown show to say the least.

im ok with maryland summers (100+ a good portion of the time, but not hugely high humidity). But we also still get legitimate winters here, which ive had enough of.

If NC is enough further south to get rid of that snow entirely, im cool with that.

It snows a hell of a lot in NC.

In SC, last time we had snow that was bad enough to cause road hazards was 1989 (same year as hurricane Hugo).

Schools and Government shut down at the first site of a flake of snow here though haha.
