    When budgeting for your rent/mortgage 'they' say it should be about a third of your income.

    We pay $625 a week on our mortgage and that is approximately a third of what we earn.

    $400 a week mortgage. 4 bdr all with built in wdrb, 2 bath, ensuite with double shower, 2 living, large outdoor area, double garage, 3 yr old home on 1/2 acre block.

    Weekly income is $1400 but we are also supplied vehicles each by our work so no running costs, insurance rego, maintenance etc & also all fuel is supplied - work & private.

    I only work part time (23 hrs) but it means I can help DH on the farm when needed & be really flexible with hours.

    We aren't putting away massive savings but the mortgage is kind of forced savings I guess since we will eventually move to the farm & DH will inherit the family farm so he prefers more money go into building the farm up then him receive higher wages & put it into savings.

    OP there is a big difference in city & country living costs, just something to keep in mind when considering income vs costs.

    Mine is skewed. Our rent is $560 per month for a 4 bed, 2 bath house, 13 year old house. We rent from our employer. If we were renting this house on the private market we'd be paying $600 per week at least (mining town).

    Average weekly income after tax is approx $2.5k

    $320 pw rent out of a usual 750 pw income, plus about 200 pw in ftb and rent assistance.
    We rent a 3 bedroom duplex, 2 bathrooms, quite a small place with a tiny yard, but in a good area.
