Here’s How Much You Need to Be ‘Wealthy’ in Bay Area

New figures from Charles Schwab show in the famously expensive Bay Area you must have $4.2 million in total holdings to be considered wealthy.

The figure is nearly double the national average of $2.4 million.

NBC Bay Area’s Scott Budman has more in the video report above.
