Miami, Tampa or San Diego - which would be best for single 29yr male. Is San Diego when it comes down to it that much more expensive to live than Florida not taking into account income tax?

Lived in Tampa (St. Pete) and San Diego (Point Loma). Tampa / St. Pete hands down. Literally almost everything is better except the Mexican food but you have great Cuban food so you can get by… The heat and humidity is no joke in Florida but the beach and water is better than San Diego easily. COL is much better too. Visited Miami. Thought about living there but I think Tampa / St. Pete gives you the same but at a more affordable price and without pretentious people.

Yes, you can find something it that range depending on what you want. I would not recommend my old complex though. I lived in downtown St. Pete. DM if you want more info and/or specifics.

I mean San Diego is a lot more like 2x the housing cost of Tampa. But sure is nice. Is your pay adjusted for COL that would be the big factor in determining where you might want to live from a feasibility factor.

Tampa housing market is out of control but still better than others you mentioned. Tampa is a great place to be right now. Dating market is great. And, most importantly, Tom Brady plays for the bucs.

Yes, between housing prices, sales tax, tax on things california deems taboo and overall COL, it’s more expensive. Now if you utilize TJ, then you can come out ahead

Love north county area of San Diego - Encinitas. Miami brickell area is sweet and Tampa would be looking at St. Pete

I live in San Diego and it’s definitely more expensive on average. It depends on your lifestyle of course. Does your company adjust pay on location? I get 10% more here than if I was in any city in Florida

Miami probably has more active boats at any time than just about any city in the US so if you’re into boats/water sports it’s great. San Diego is no slacker there either though.

Hm different. PB has the hot college girls and early 20s. Little Italy has the late 20s and 30s hot and classy ladies 😉

North Park / Mission Valley in SD are perfect in terms of access to everything (<30 minute drive) COL + SDG&E + taxes are pretty killer, although the pros of living in SD are pretty nice too

How much is a one-bedroom apt in San Diego? Average cost for a safe area;15-20 minutes from downtown.

Thinking of taking a job offer at a start up. They’ve lowered the salary due to new team structuring. They were fully transparent about the process and I’ve agreed to the changes. However, the Original listing offered a sign on bonus, I asked for it despite of the changes as it was a fairly big part of why I applied. Am I okay to ask 15% due at offer signing. I have other job offers with higher salary options (no bonus) but I’m more inspired to work at the start up.
