Coming at you with another poll. These seem to be wildly popular and that makes me happy. It’s one less day I have to think about writing and one more day you all get to see how you fare against the masses. Since we’ve done debt and income, figured we could use this poll to explore housing. Likely, the biggest money suck you have.
Only got one rule before we get to it…
- Factor in ALL of your monthly housing costs (PITI/rent, utilities, HOA’s, etc).
For extra credit, drop a comment reiterating what your ALL IN housing costs are, if you rent or own, what general geographic area you live in (obviously important for perspective), how many people covered under this payment, and what percent of your NET household income this gobbles up. I’ll go first…
- My all in housing costs: $1,175
- Just outside of Seattle
- Just me and Girl Ninja
- 19.62% of our take home pay goes to housing
