    Default How much rent/loan do you pay a week?

    For those of you who don't mind answering, how much per week do you pay in either rent or mortgage repayments? And what is your household after tax weekly income. We just moved back to Australia and are getting used to budgeting in a different currency. Of course only we can decide what we can afford, but I'm just curious about what situation others are in.

    We pay $370 for a small two bedroom apartment 4km out of Brisbane city.

    DP also owns three houses in Tasmania but I'm not sure what the mortgage repayments are on those...around $500 a week I believe.

    As for our annual income...I'm not too sure right now to be honest as things have changed recently.

    Weekly rent is $260 for a three bedroom, two living area, two bathroom, double garage, big backyard, but quite old house in regional NSW. Income is about to change again because my paid parental leave just finished and I'm not going back to work properly as yet.

    $455 for a very basic 3 br, onebathroom, tiny courtyard home. Weekly income can vary but has increased by about triple this financial year due to DP rebranding and expanding his business.

    I want to live where you live! Your rent sounds so cheap for what you are getting!
