Average price where I'm at is around $700 / ft.

I make 6 figures and the median home price - MEDIAN, not average - is still 10x my annual income. I'd be stoked if I had even 37% like referenced earlier in this thread.

What’s the “rule?” Don’t buy something more than three times your gross household income?

That basically limits you to a trailer park around here - maybe. Some of the mobile homes are still $400k.

Example 1: $458,000

Example 2: $399,000

Example 3: $367,000

There are literally only a handful (and I mean like < 5) places under $400,000 that are not mobile / manufactured homes.

Example: $399,000 1/1, 440 sqft

The adage around here is more like 8-10x your income but no more than 10x.

On the plus side, there are tons of opportunities for making $150k+ and it scales quickly if you're competent. I've gone from tech > engineer > PM in the span of about 3 years.
