Seattle vs Minnepaolis

Which city is better…seattle looks amazing with mild weather, mouthing, lakes, bunch of tech companies and no income tax but it super expensive… Can Somalis in seattle afford homes? Everything is 700k+ meaning you would need to make around 200k a years to make that work and live comfortable…

Somalis in MN are buying homes like crazy since they are only around 300k for basic house. Just need to make 60k a year and decent credit to qualify for a house.. are Somalis in seattle marking much more than those in mpls or are they all renters?

People rarely by houses in the city even the hood is too expensive. So usuallly they buy houses on the outskirts of seattle, cities that are like a few minutes away from the border. They plan on building a super subway in the next ten years. By then no one will be driving.
 
Seattle and San Diego got Section 8 with an Oceanside view. :pachah1:
Even second generation Somalis that graduate from college? First gen live off section 8 but is the second gen those who were born here now in their mid to late 20s still on section 8?

Make sense but if your going to live very far from seattle (40+ miles) might as well move to a more affordable city in the Midwest.. I like seattle area but it’s not worth it if you don’t work in tech or have a high paying job

40+ miles is to much, I’d say like 10 miles max. Anything more than that is useless you’ll be living in a weird quiet place.

Of course Seattle is superior. We have no state income tax and downtown Seattle (where I work) is a thing of beauty.

Seattle was beautiful when I visited, if it wasn’t so expensive I would love to live there .

Seattle but it’s still trash apart from some regions

I think both places have their perks depending on what ur career and goals are. Every time I am away from Seattle, I get homesick, I just love the PNW in general. :)

I live in Seattle, and I'm familiar with MN so:

Seattle
-------------
pros:
high salaries
close to a major intl city (Vancouver)
no income tax

cons:
ridiculously high cost of living and home prices
gloomy and raining 70% of the time (think of an American London)
ppl are very standoffish. its called the Seattle freeze where everyone has autist level social skills.

Minneapolis
---------------

pros:
great food options
cheap homes if you go the burbs
ppl are mostly nice
great lakes/parks

cons:
very shit weather
too many zoos

Lol seattle got better cuisine due to its diversity we have Japanese, Chinese, Mexican, islander, and African restaurants all around. Rainy season in seattle starts around November and ends around March. From April till October the weather is great.
