No man/woman. This is the total. We are just starting I guess. I think our budget is around 500k: Hope it’s all reasonable

@OP, as long as you keep your mortgage + other (e.g. condo association) costs less than 30% of your household income, you are totally fine. With your price range, you would be very comfortable.

Totally reasonable, also no need to be ashamed, that’s an absolutely fine combined HH income

Let me know if you find a good area. Contact me directly. I’m in Seattle too and started looking at 550k range and moved upto 750k, and made two offers, but didn’t get lucky yet.
