Brent's house

Scenario 1

How much he has to spend on a house

Annual Salary: 60,000

Subtract taxes: 60,000 - (60,000 x 3/10) = 42,000



Divide to monthly paycheck: 42,000/12 = 3,500

Subtract car payment: 3,500 - 450.00 = 3,050

Subtract gas: 3,050 - (assuming gas is at 3.85 a gallon and Brent drives a Hyundai Accent it will come out to be around 200.00) = 2,850

Subtract Food: 2,850 - (Brent is a vegetarian lowering his food costs to about 250.00 a month).= 2,600

Subtract miscellaneous: 2,600 - (Brent likes to save up to see his family every Christmas as well as a nice dinner with his new girlfriend, and he is saving up for retirement roughly 450.00 a month). = 2,150.00

Brent lives with his very successful doctor brother so he does not contribute any money to his home.

Brent has $2,150.00 dollars he can spend a month on a house.
