Apartment Hunting ?

Alright I'm finally getting ready to move out of the parents house and was wondering if there is a certain % of pay that should be considered for rent?

Thanks

I don't know about a percentage... I bugeted for rent when I moved out, but one thing I didn't realize was how much my grocery bill was going to go through the roof! I miss momma's home cookin... Not only delicious, but free too!

Yeah I was just wondering if there was any type of base, thiking 1200-1400 cause I need a garage since I have two cars and the 10. That wouldn't allow for much savings though unless my GF had a decent job.

apparently you should make 3x your apartment rent monthly. so if your rent is 700 you should take home 2100 per month.

That's a good estimate, but with the current economic crisis, I would suggest lowering that expectation somewhat...
