    about 13% of gross income. I think a lot of people are doing it tough and are under financial stress at the moment.

    0% for us as we've paid our mortgage out but I'm appalled at Sydney property prices though and the pressure it puts on families - both renting and home owners

    Just worked it out properly and it's about 16% - close enough. It's actually quite surprising.. I just thought that it would be a higher percentage.. Makes me wonder where the rest of our money goes 😁

    Is this based on gross or net income?
    I just used DHs salary as we're trying to live only on it as I'll go on mat leave in July.
    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!
