Looking for work got sick and can't drive anymore for my company I'm a liability now here 15 yrs no education now what
#PG on Apr 21, 2015 :
I pay about $2,000 per month (including parking) in Denver for a fairly nice (but not luxury) one-bedroom near downtown. Rent here is very high.
#Alex on Apr 01, 2015 :
i still think Pittsburgh is cheaper then California I live in San Diego and man it's expensive I want to relocate to Pittsburgh
#LM on Mar 25, 2015 :
WOW!!! I don't know very many people, even with Master's Degree's in Pittsburgh earning even the minimum income after taxes they are claiming. The job market in Pittsburgh is lacking. The rent in Pittsburgh has increased literally overnight and income taxes may be increasing if Wolfes' plan gets approved, and property taxes decreasing. Pittsburgh is no longer a livable City.
#kailey on Feb 21, 2015 :
Some of the averages are a bit off but rent and utilities are fairly accurate. U gotta remember the more expensive rental properties are included. And jman ur rent is expensive cause your in bridgeville. If u want to stay in that area then u are stuck with ridiculous rent.
#JMan on Feb 09, 2015 :
Where at!!! I pay 700$ for a crappy 1 bedroom in Bridgeville, and its the cheapest i could find in the area. FML.
#CJ on Jan 19, 2015 :
Um... I pay $675 for a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath and my electric is roughly $165/month. I was reading the averages and basically said DAMN! I got lucky, huh?
#shawn on Oct 07, 2014 :
I don't know many pittsburgh folks who have a Disposable salary of $3,278...especially after taxes.

I believe the average yearly income is somewhere around $35,000 BEFORE taxes, insurance, living expenses, etc.
