    I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on the best ways to determine "cost of living" for an area? I'm not applying until next year, but I have a small family to move and would like to be well prepared!
    My first thought is to look at the price of real estate in the area. Sometimes this helps, many times it does not.
    Thanks for your help!

    The site below is a fairly good resource. Enter in a generic salary and your current location and it'll give you the salary you should be making in the NEW city to roughly break even. It's not perfect, but will give you an idea of the cost of living increase/decrease from your current location.
