This question is more geared towards the younger folk who are in their early-late 20s. I will be starting a full-time job soon and I need to find an apartment to live in and I want to get a feel for what is "appropriate" for rent. Would 25% of your income for rent be outrageous? I'll be living in Boston, where the cost of living is significantly higher, so any adjustments for where you live would be taken into account as well. I'd also appreciate it if you could tell me whether you live with roommates or alone. Danke schÃ¶n!
