That would be the most boring job ever. I hear testers only make like 15 - 20 /hour too, screw that I live in San Diego.

I guess it depends where you live. I have a 1368 square foot house that was built in 1974. I paid $515,000 for it and have a $3,092 mortgage payment ( P/I/T/I ). If you made 20/hour in San Diego you'd be apartment bound for life.

I figure by the time I retire it will be worth enough to sell and move to a nice area somewhere in another state.

1000 sq foot condos without garages sell for $425k !! This is in the suburbs too mind you! Other areas are more expensive such as areas in New York as well as the city of San Francisco in CA, but they don't have "sunshine tax". That's unique to San Diego. It's a term used to describe our much higher than average salary to cost of living ratio.

I've never understood how it is remotely feasible to live somewhere like that. My house sounds like about the same size as yours. We had it built new in 1998 for $119,000 in Hamilton County just north of Indy (third fastest growing area in the United States next to Orange County, CA and Manhatten County, NY as of statistics from a year or two ago). Anyway, figure in your other costs of living index hikes over around here (~100% vs ~%200 or so there). Are the salaries just synthetically inflated to balance things out?

“San Diego County’s high housing prices, coupled with its relatively low wages, make it the second least affordable area in the country, the National Association of Home Builders reported.” (San Diego Union-Tribune, 1/7/05)
The average new detached home in San Diego County sells for $781,000, the average new condominium for $490,000 and the average condo conversion unit for $303,000. (2/28/05, San Diego Business Journal/MarketPointe Realty Advisors.)

The median price of housing in San Diego doubled between 2000 and 2004, but the median household income only increased 10.4 percent. (SDUT, 10/31/04)
Just 11 percent of households are able to purchase the median-priced home, according to the California Association of Realtors. (North County Times, 2/11/05)
Glad I own and am settled in with a 30 year fixed mortgage...

You could buy an absolute mansion with 10-20 acres of land (maybe a little less) with that kind of money down here in Southwest Florida.

Those 781k houses are practically tract homes. Your neighbor will be 15 feet away, and your backyard wall will be within spitting distance. 10-20 acres in San Diego, if you can find it, would cost 10-12 million dollars.

It's kind of a recent thing. Prices doubled in 4 years, but salaries only went up 10%. Pretty telling.

There are people who have owned 10 - 20 years etc, who bought their houses for $115k. My neighbor probably makes about 4 times less than my wife and I combined, yet he has a nicer house, nicer cars, and clearly more spending money. He bought 20 years ago while I bought this year =) It's strange, mixing people with such drastically different income levels in the same neighborhood, it's like a class clash. That's why the best advice ever is buy a house as soon as you possibly can. Save the nice car, stereo, and PC system for afterwards.
