Default Re: Job for steeda :)

1 bedroom apartments in the city I work in cost 250,000 (~$500,000). Leeds is one of the least expensive to live in across the country too! That said, in the suburbs 250,000 would get you a 2 bedroom semi detached house which isn't bad. London land prices on the other hand are just stupid...

To work on a game testers wage would require one to be living with parents or some such...

A studio apartment close to Central Park in NYC cost about $2800 a month (no utilities included). $3000 for a house in SD is not so bad.
