    About 18% for our mortgage. We recently bought a brick 4bedroom 2 bathroom, 2 car garage on an acre about 10mins from town.

    We are loving the space.

    Eta: When we were searching for houses the parameters I put in were maximum $550. The majority of the places that came up were units and most only 2 bedroom.
    I LOVE Darwin and would move back in a heartbeat, but what you get for your money for housing is just insane.
    When we were defence it was doable but we'd struggle in civvy housing. I dont envy you!

    If I do it net it's 43% but if I use his annual salary the target of 30% is $2250 per month and were a bit under that.
    That being said I'm RUBBISH at maths and could be way off. Ha ha!
    The OP referred to your gross income

    40% on SPP.

    Mind you I have arranged it that way as I am on a very low fixed mortgage rate at the moment, and want to make the most of it while it lasts.

    If I were paying the minimum, it would be only 23%

    If the $hit hits the fan, I could always re-mortgage, and start paying the minimum.
