Define YOUR comfortable west coast living lifestyle and go from there. I’ve seen salaries start at $85k - $110k in SF

I am trying to keep the question from becoming subject to the industry and only focus on cost of living in the area to be able to save and still do some fun stuff along the way.

Your question has too many variables, you can find your own answer with some searching on Google. It’s really based on your preferences. Are you single? What type of place /living arrangement do you ideally want? Do you have a car? Do you want to live in the city or East Bay / South and train or bus in? How much night life do you want to have? Travel? Savings? Etc. here your biggest expenses are rent. Owning a car can be expensive too. Then going out/food. I think a single person with roommates can’t live comfortably on less than 55k but maybe someone here lives here and can explain their situation.

I am not sure what my variables will be. So, I I’m trying to find that out without a filter of what those could be. Below is the prefect response I am looking for. What they are making and some of those variables that you listed, help greatly. Let me know if you have more insight. Thx

Honestly any “Senior” role below 100k in SF is totally not worth it.

Can’t speak to what you personally find comfortable, but I’m at 90k and living what I think is comfortably with a significant other. We’re lucky to pay 3k for a one bedroom 900sq ft apartment in SF proper and can afford a car, a few vacations a year, and regularly dine well (I never have to worry about it). I’ll say, fitting diligent savings in on top of that is tough for me. My girlfriend makes 120 though and has no problems at all
