If you pair the numbers you get from this calculator with the payments you can calculate with the mortgage calculators (link button on left), you can start to get a very good idea of how much it’s going to cost you to live in close vs. living away from work.
How much are you spending on your commute to work? Whether moving, considering a new job, weighing the benefits of tele-commuting, or just curious what you're spending given the current cost of gas, you'll probably be interested to see how expensive simply getting to work actually is.
