I've just picked up an extra day at work. The extra money means for the first time in my life, putting a roof over my head is finally 'affordable' at 35% of my income!!! I'm a low-medium income earner and a single parent with a small mortgage in a rural area. Prior to this, around 45% of my income went to the mortgage.
In the past my rent/mortgage has been around the 50% mark and at times up to 60-70%, particularly when I was renting as a uni student in the city
Just wondering what percentage of income other people spent on their housing?
