• Follow the one-third rule. With this rule of thumb, follow the prevailing economic view that your rent should not exceed more than one-third of your income for the month. Figure out your maximum rent by dividing your income by 36.
• Tally up all your expenses. Before deciding on the highest rent you are willing and able to pay, make sure all your other living expenses are accounted for. Utilities and transportation are necessary expenses in the city. And if you are looking for pet apartments, that is one more thing to consider. Do not forget to budget for dog or cat food, toys, and other pet-related expenses.
• Consider your priorities. You may already know you are looking for dog-friendly apartments in Boston, but different buildings and locations will offer different advantages. Are you willing to pay a little more to be near a park, for example? What if that means sacrificing the big kitchen you would ideally want? Find the place where you and your pet will be happiest!
