How much does the American dream cost: the most expensive and affordable states

If in 2019 year you are one of those who seek to realize their own American dream, it is important to realize your real financial situation. It is expected that house prices, although slower, will continue to rise in the 2020 year, which cannot be said for wages. With this perspective, can the American dream still be available?

According to a new study Gobankingrates, the answer may depend on where you live. Researchers have defined the concept of the American dream as the life of a married couple with two children, a pet, a house, and a car. The study analyzed the annual costs of maintaining the above (along with other needs, such as utilities and healthcare) and the final costs needed to achieve the American dream in each individual state.

All figures are given per year.
