Hi guys. Nice forum, extremely useful, I appreciate everyone's effort. =D>

After reading a lot, there's still a couple of things I'm not sure about. Here's a question, maybe too personal, so I'll make it a poll, and whoever wishes can discuss below.

How much, in percent, of your income (monthly/yearly) do you spend on paying for rent?

When calculating, please sum up all of your incomes (basic salary, housing and other allowances, minus the tax, etc. for everyone in the household employed with income) before you make the percentage. I'm not sure if this is the best way to calculate it, so if anyone has a good idea about it, please let it be known. Also, if it's not too personal, please explain below with any details you can, e.g. how many persons live in the household, how many people earn a salary in the household, etc.

I'm very eager to hear about this and I think a lot of people might be interested to see the stats. I deeply thank everyone who gives input.

Hi,

Just a thought, how about getting a poll on the amounts...for e.g.

between S$ 500 - S$ 1000; S$ 1001 - S$ 1500; S$ 1501 - S$ 2000;
S$ 2001 - S$ 2500;S$ 2501 - S$ 3000; S$ 3001 - S$ 3500;etc...this way you would know how much one would generally spend on housing....rather than on the percentage of salary since many companies pay different salaries to employees working for the same post and position.

Cheers,
Rubina.
