Hey Reddit! We did some research we thought you might find interesting. Here’s where some major US metropolitan areas draw the line between financial comfort and wealth. What do you think?

Financially Comfortable Wealthy
Boston $1.47 million $2.59 million
Washington, DC $1.34 million $2.75 million
New York City $1.92 million $3.5 million
South Florida (Including Miami) $1.51 million $3.09 million
Chicago $1.47 million $2.56 million
Dallas $1.33 million $2.4 million
Denver $1.12 million $2.41 million
Seattle $1.5 million $3.24 million
SF Bay Area $2.14 million $4.12 million
Los Angeles $1.54 million $2.78 million

Sure, we can all agree that yachts and lambos are signs of wealth, but wealth means something different to everyone, so it’s worth thinking through what wealth really means to you personally. Is wealth simply having no debt? Having time to spend on your hobbies or your family? Being able to retire early? Buying your dream home?

Figuring out what wealth means to you is an important step in the journey to financial health. We created this quiz to help people think through the overall health of their saving strategies, so feel free to take it, share your results, and/or ask questions here!
