Most Expensive Cities to Live In

moving to Seattle

Rent has always been a major factor for people who want to move to another city. While many cities in the United States are generally affordable, some require residents to shell out a few more bucks. In 2013, the average rent in the U.S. was $1,231 per month. Landlords can charge more than the national average because they are aware that there are very limited spaces that are available in larger cities. They know that people are willing to spend the ridiculous amount of rent to stay in these cities. Having said that, did your hometown make it to the list?
