I recently moved from the US (Boston), and have gone through the househunting bit, etc..
If you're looking at $100k gross, the big question for youw ill be, is your company going to tax equalize you (ie. you'll pay US txs & they make up the difference) or not. That's gonna be the big factor for you. If you want some advice, you should also check into transportation allowances, as well as whether or not your health insurance will be covered. Those are 2 areas that can quickly become big $$ sinks for you.
Also, you need to be prepared that what you get for rental space is vastly different from what you'd get in a US major city- probably the big compromise will be space (sq footage). The rental market is even stingier than NYC, so you're not likely to get a lot of space for your $$.
Hope that helps. If you need anything else, you can send me a pm.
