      Before moving to a new city you want to know how much it will cost to live there. “Cost of living” is the amount of money you need to maintain a certain lifestyle in a given place. The price of goods and services vary from one city to another, calculating the cost of living will help you determine how much more or less you need to make and help you factor in expenses.

      The expenses that go in to determining cost of living include housing prices for renters or homeowners, housing affordability, entertainment costs, transportation expenses, food prices, and taxes.


      A cost of living index allows you to compare what it costs to live in one place against another, helping you get a glimpse of how far your money will go before you move. For example the cost of living in New York City is almost twice that of Portland, Oregon.

      Our goal with the Cost of Living Calculator is to help you feel more confident in deciding where to live and help you find your best place to live.
