Creating a reasonable budget

for both the lease and extra

housing costs will save a lot of

anxiety when you plan

to rent a house.

Although it is generally discouraged to spend more than one-third of your paycheck on rent, this can be a hard rule to follow when looking to rent in a popular area like NYC or San Francisco. You’re going to spend a larger share of your pay renting in that area than in the Midwest. Go online to start your search for your new rental home. Once you’ve found some homes you like, search around the areas of that home for local school, restaurants, and other commodities that you may like. Find out how long your commute to work would be.
