Lol your partner can give 2k per month and you make minimum 170k? Buddy you’re going to do just fine. Partner contribution alone could be a 1 bedroom

30% of gross monthly income is the rule of thumb, lower that if you want more disposable income. Should add many people in nyc go over this because apartments are so expensive

Well 30% is the rule of the thumb but honestly at your salary range, I would go for 20%. You won’t save more money if expenses increase proportionately to income. So that’s $3000 from you plus $2000 from your SO. You can find lots of decent 1 to 2 bedroom at $5000 range

likesmart

You can afford up to over $5500 but no reason to do that if you care about saving money. Cap it somewhere between $3500-$3800. Use StreetEasy site/app to look for places.

Don’t spend more than 3,500. Anything above and you’re getting a rip off. Also be weary of not having a credit score. Don’t let brokers take advantage.

Received a job offer. Was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on a concern I had about it. It's an entry level position, and I don't have much experience. The billables are 2040 a year. For billable hours in civil litigation and insurance defense, is 2040 hours for a 1st year associate on the high end in this field for a small or midsize firm? It seems like most attorneys I know have minimum requirements of around 1800. The compensation is around 80k a year.
