Re: How much of your net salary do pay in rent?

We pay 30% (with NK and 2 car parks) and feel fine with this amount. But, this is for a large maisonette with garden, for a family of 5, with guest room. If we where without kids, or I was single, I would put 20% into rent and focus into saving / enjoying singlehood. For us, with children and wanting a comfy place to live, 30% is perfectly fine. If we didn't have debt to pay we would have even considered more...

But this depends of course on what is important for you, what would you rather 'invest' into - it's economical, and decisions like this are normal. What would you rather have, left over money for outings/nightlife/savings or enjoy a good location, modern place, with ample space? Up to each one.
