SF is expensive to live. Single with no kids it would be fun on 90k. Married with a couple of kids with a single income it would be doable but not pleasant. I dont think I would live in SF with less than 300k a year. It would take closer to 500k to make it worthwhile. Plus if you bought a house with good parking and a backyard that wasn't a glorified alley you would need closer to a mil. Throw in close to work and have money for nice vacations and a mil is about the bottom end.
But when I was single and out of college with a good job up there I would have jumped at the chance to live in a studio near a club.
