Have you ever lived in a city where rent is too high to pay? 

A new report revealed that ten U.S. cities have rent that are too high to pay if you want to live in a two bedroom apartment without selling everything you own in order to make payments. The city that has it the worst is San Francisco, where residents are having to make $188,000 a year in order to live comfortably in a two bedroom apartment. That sounds great except $103,801 is about the average household income in San Francisco.
