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.

It varies depending on how much I work.
Currently our mortgage is about 70% of DH's wage and whatever I bring in is on top of that. I'm currently casual so some fortnights it'll drop to 25% but others it'll be 50+%. Bit stressful at the moment.
I think in my mind it isn't so bad as we're not renting and it just feels like an investment as we have no intention of moving prior to retirement.

1/3 of my wage goes on rent. Currently DF is in between jobs so isn't receiving benefits nor a regular wage so it is a bit of a struggle at the moment-especially with a wedding coming up :/

29% of our double income, this is for two mortgages though. Unfortunately means I cant be on maternity leave as long as I'd like but we should reap the rewards within the next 3 years
