This worksheet will help you prepare a monthly budget to estimate how much rent you can afford. First, list money that you earn or have available each month (income). Then, list all of the things you commonly pay for each month (expenses). The balance between your income and expenses represents how money you have available each month. As a general rule, rental housing is considered affordable if it costs less than 30% of your before-tax household income.
