Salary only, POST TAX

Including utilities, insurance etc

Am about to be spending 37% of my salary for housing and wondering if it’s way too much.

    Are you asking salary or tc? Pre tax or post tax?

      Why only salary? Stock and bonus accounts for at least 25% of vast majority of the FNG tc

      Stock value is variable, could be tricky to depend on it

      Intuit, my rent would represent 26% of my gross salary pre-tax, looks like I should be fine then assuming everyone answered considering pre-tax

      That’s totally a reasonable amount to spend on rent

      Just trying to have my own place that is not too bad and too far from Palo Alto, but it looks like it’s not as easy as I thought
