    I would prob speak with a broker to see what they advise you and what they think you can afford esp as the more kids you have the lower the amount you can generally borrow due to everyday living expenses being higher. We currently pay $2500 a month for our mortgage atm & thing will become tight once bubs is here but you make do

    $2000 per month for a $300,000 home loan.
    It was less but we borrowed more to renovate.
    I hate interest But Id rather own than rent so I am glad we have the opportunity to do so.

    We pay interest only 2k a month, then try to put at least 1.5k in the offset too. So we pay between 3.5-4k a month. On a 400k loan. Money is tight!

    A lot, but we have just done 175k worth of renovations so it feels like we are starting all over again.

    If I could go back in time, I would have bought the house we wanted before we had kids, instead of being conservative and buying the shoebox that we did, as we had the capacity to pay so much more off back then as I was working full-time. We paid so much off our first house, and would be better off now. Instead, we did the "right" thing. Anyway...
