Couldn’t do the renting and roommates. Rather commute from home. Had to wait till salary was at $110+ and saved for a while then bought a house (small and cheap one).

At $120k

Around 70k. Could no longer deal with roommates. Was definitely living beyond my means for a few years. My apartment was rent stabilized though so that helped.

Damn. I’m at that range now and couldn’t imagine renting my own place

$27K when I was 22. But that was in 2006, and rent was 1/4th of what it is now. But I also had bed bugs for roommates, and was on the top floor of a walk up.

The bedbug part. Crazy conditions.

$78K a year ago, NYC - studio. $95K present, NYC - one-bed.

$90k

$80K in 2016 NYC

I've been living solo since I graduated in 2008 in KS, CA, Chicago. All cheaper than here of course and I still went and did more school after.

120k.

$80K studio

$100K, LA

$60K … always preferred living solo even if it meant a studio

A question for Big 4 peeps - if you know the salary range in the group you wanna go for is 150k to 170k, how much should you say when the HR asks you how much you want? Is 180k too much to start with? (Didn’t want to start with 170k since they will only come back with lower I assume)
