How Much House You Can Buy, In 385 U.S. Cities

Planet Money

On the heels of the chart showing how far your paycheck goes in over 350 U.S. cities (which was amazingly popular on our Facebook page), here's another great chart from the Planet Money folks.

Click on the link above and take a look at how almost two dozen Florida metro areas like Tampa, Lakeland and Cape Coral stack up in comparison to more than 300 other cities around the country.
