My fiance and I are getting married in four months, so we decided to start looking at houses. We’ve been to one showing, and looked at a lot of listings online; and I was starting to get a little discouraged by how expensive everything is. Then I got to work today and found this list of housing costs in other cities, and I suddenly didn’t feel so bad.
Bankrate.com has put together a list of the cities with the most expensive housing costs, factoring in the mortgage rate, insurance cost, and principle & interest. The results actually kind of surprised me. Here are the top ten:
