Remote position compensation

Should I expect lower compensation when negotiating for a remote position and I live in a lower cost of living area (say missouri) than the location of the office (say Google/Apple etc. in San Franscico).

Or should i base my negotiations off what people usually get offered for my experience from that area?

If you have experience with this, I'd love to hear from you.

No, negotiate based on the value you bring and the company's salary band for your particular role and experience. I live in mid MO and work for a company based in Santa Cruz that pays its employees Bay Area rates regardless of where they live.

My company does the same but I get the impression it’s not the norm.
