San Francisco is also an expensive place to live. It has the the third-highest cost of living in the U.S., possibly contributing to Purdy’s desire for a roommate. A one-bedroom apartment or condo’s median monthly rent in San Francisco is $2,993 — 137% higher than the national median — according to Zillow data.
Purdy’s car might not have been cheap: Sequoias are typically the most expensive SUVs in Toyota’s lineup, with a new 2024 model starting at $73,465. Still, it’s hardly a million-dollar sports car, and it’s unclear what year Purdy’s vehicle is from, or whether it was purchased new or used.
