Here's some information you need before you get started.

  2. Your dream house cannot be more than 30% of what you make in 8 years at your current income.
  3. You will finance your house over 30 years. On the average, with interest, you will pay 3 times the purchase price when you finance a house over 30 years.
  4. Your dream car cannot be more than 35% of your annual income.
  5. You work 40 hours per week (five 8-hour days), 50 weeks per year ( the other 2 weeks are used for vacation without pay). Since you can't count on any overtime, you may not use it in this project.
