I’m currently looking at two jobs. One back in Monterey, CA. The other just outside Knoxville, TN. Here is a great example of the differences in living costs.

$2350 / 2br – 2BR/2BA Immaculate Restored “victorian” Home in Pacific Grove

2 Bed 2 Bath Home in Pacific Grove, CA

 Immaculate 2BR/2BA restored “Victorian” home in Pacific Grove. Sun room and den. Some frunishings and washer and dryer. Beautifully remodeled and landscaped. Includes gardener. Located about 6 blocks from down town and a few more to the ocean.


$2100 / 5br – 5 BR. Executive home for lease in Oak Ridge

5 Bed 5 Bath Home in Oak Ridge, TN

Executive home for rent in Oak Ridge. Less than 3 years old. Home has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths. Pristine condition. It has over 5200 sq. ft. of living space as well as a full size walk up attic for extra storage. The walkout basement has recently been finished and offers a workout/media room, plus a large rec room, full bath and workshop.
