Default Cost of living in your area?

COST OF LIVING IN LOS CABOS, BAJA, MEXICO;

Gas in Baja = $2.70 a gal.

Bakery bread in Cabo = $2.00

Local farm eggs = $3.00 a doz.

Local organic produce = 1 huge bag (about 30 lbs. of mixed veggies) = $12.00

T bone stake (thick and juicy) = $4.00

Organic coffee = $6.00 a lbs.

UTILITIES

Electric = about $100 a month (yearly average / includes hot tub and air conditioning)

Water = $4.00 a month (that's right four dollars)

Propane = $8.00 a month (hot water, cooking and dyer)

Phone = $60 a month including 2 meg DSL)

TAXES

House four bedrooms (2,600 sq. ft.) huge yard / ocean view / great neighborhood (current house value about $250,000) = $80 dollars a year, , that's right eighty dollars a year if paid before Feb. 15th.

Ranch (70 acres) + $50.00 a year, yes that's fifty dollars a year for a seventy acre ranch.


I have no bills to speak of and I can live very comfortably on $1,200 a month.

What does the same standard of living cost in your area?

Hey baja, any suggestions on real estate down there? 1,200 a month sounds fantastic. ****, I could do make that by doing sleep studies for a month every year.

Heck yeah, throwing away a college education!

I just looked a great one bedroom condo for $65,000

Home prices are dropping like a rock here. I just sold a house valued a 2.6 mil. two years ago for 1.2 mil.

I don't know the exact cost of everything you listed but I spend about 2-2.5k a month. That includes all entertainment. It doesn't include random big purchases like TVs and furniture.

Building a 6500 square foot house on 67 acres of forrest / pasture. Land is paid off at 2200 per acre. House is going to be about 120 / ft. Putting in geothermal system so I don't know what the bills will be like except substantially less. Plus, there is a 30% tax credit on the install costs and a 12K credit from the utility company. Gas and food is probably as cheap as it gets in the US.

We have the second highest cell phone rates in the world. I can afford it but millions can not and for many that is their only phone.

BTY a heads up the is a nation wide grass roots movement to invite competition and when that happens I predict 60% of TelCel users will switch carriers - good time to sell that stock.

Dang man. I just bought a house that is a little over 2000 square feet and I was thinking that is a little too big. I couldn't imagine over three times that.

The cost of living here is much cheaper than the national average. I don't do the shopping, but my wife has noticed higher prices at the grocery store. Gas was $2.69 the last time I filled the tank.

The CEO of Wal-Mart is now saying that U.S. inflation is “going to be very serious” and that Wal-Mart is already seeing “cost increases starting to come through at a pretty rapid rate.” He predicts that because of huge increases in raw material costs, along with soaring labor costs in China, and skyrocketing fuel costs around the world, retail prices will start increasing at Wal-Mart and all of their competitors in June, especially for clothing and food.
