I know a couple of guys own houses and some have built their own home-office in their backyard (which is something I really admire and hope to do one of this fine days) but to the rest of clan that are on rentals, how much do you pay for rent (inclusive of service charge)?

Do you follow any guideline like your rent should not be more than 30% of your gross income?

Personally I’m paying $350 at the moment :)

Share your thoughts.

350$ means nothing. you should post the city and the country so we can make a better idea of the living cost.

At the moment this are the rental prices in the area where I live

In Poland it would be more or less the same, depends on a place, you could have the same also for 6 USD but in Malaysia I have full dinner with drinks for 6-7 RM which is around 2 USD!

That’s in East Malaysia though. If you come to the West (such as Kuala Lumpur), a full dinner will cost way more than that ;)

Back to topic, since I’m still quite young (still studying), I’m staying with my parents ;)

in Serbia it’s usually 300$ for 2 rooms…

I am going to LA in February to live/work and prices are really high… I’ll probably pay around 1500$ for a place in Santa Monica.
