San Francisco Least Affordable Place To Live

According to a new study, buying and renting a house in the Bay area is all but impossible for most people.

"According to the report, an income of $223,576 was needed to buy a median-priced home in the city, which now costs $705,000. Just two years ago, the median price of a house in San Francisco was $567,000. The soaring housing prices are fashioning a new term -- 'surreal estate.'"
