Your Wage and How Much You Pay for Rent


What is your yearly salary and how much do you have to pay for rent per month?

EDIT:

Any currency and before tax.

It might help if you clarified the currency and if it's before or after taxes.

I pay just over $1,100 a month, and I make well under $16,000 a year.

Around €24k after tax, I don't rent.

This is a good way of putting it. I'm a little lower: 27% of pay goes to rent. I make too much money to save any more on housing unless I want to live with roommates.

Rent is 1/3 of my pay on average sometimes more.

Yes over $1000 seems ridiculous to me, even though I don't rent, the average rent where I live is €400 a month at current exchange rate $440, though it depends on the area I guess, big city, inner city is gonna command higher.

Where I am (metropolitan area), I tried finding a place at about $1000. It's impossible unless you make a lot less money than I do. Housing around that price has a maximum income because the apartment complex gets assistance.

I don't make tons of money so I was really surprised to learn that. It explains why most people around here live with roommates.

When my dad was working I think he made about $2,000 a week and our rent was never less than $800 going back all the way to the 90s. Rent has been insane for many years. I would say that we were paying $1,000 a month for rent by 1991. I think the condo mortgage is quite a bit lower than rent but I never really asked them how much it is. I think it might be as low as $400 a month. I might have asked once but never really got a clear answer. My mother tends to become argumentative about anything dealing with bills so it's a topic best avoided unless you want to put up with her being in a rotten mood all day.

Of our household income 10% goes on the mortgage. We don't earn loads but live within our means, not buying stuff we dont need.

Actually, I don't know. Probably not but he did make that much (or close to it) some weeks. He probably made closer to $1200 - $1500 most times. But yeah. He made decent money for the times. I'd say he probably made closer to $50k per year though when it was all said and done. Some weeks maybe he got paid more. Some weeks he had to stop at a certain point because of hour limits. If he had too many hours he wasn't allowed to drive anymore by law.

But anyway. He probably made more than some truckers do because it was a union job and he had a lot of experience and did a lot of runs that some people couldn't or wouldn't do (cross country, triple trailers and so forth). He probably didn't make $96k a year though. At least it didn't seem like he was making that much but I sometimes asked how much the checks were and I do remember a few times when they were close to $2k.

I might ask him one day

$50k is decent these days. You must have grown up with a comfy life.

Also depends where you live. I make just under $50k and I can't afford a place of my own. Too expensive up here.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving
