I am 33 yrs old and live in a rent stabilized apartment at Spanish Harlem, New York. I pay $750/monthly for 2 bedroom apartment. Electricity/Gas = $100-150/monthly. My credit card bill average $500-600/monthly. I also give $400 to my parents each month. Total monthly expenses is $1900 plus/minus ~ 23k/year
I work 2 jobs. First is a full-time job earning 78k/year, where the job is not stable. Second is a part-time job earning 23k/year, where the job is stable. After tax, insurance, etc, I bring in 62k/year.
I get to save close to 39k a year. Half of the saving is invested in stocks/mutual funds.
I am wondering if i should leave this apartment and buy, or stay and continue saving money. I have 55k in savings and 38k in stocks and mutual funds.Asked almost 2 years ago
