My wife and I were recently transferred up here (Military and professional) that both work in the community. We have lived all over the country and have really noticed the astronomical cost of living up here. What is really noticeable are the prices of homes.
We love it up here and really want to retire here, but we are concerned about how far the retirement dollars would go up here. Even modest homes prices seem to really be inflated up here.
How do people afford housing up here without sacrificing their entire salary or retirement?
