1/3 Rule:  Many financial experts concur that your monthly living expenses should not exceed 1/3 of your total income after taxes.  This includes rent price, utilities, and any other costs associated with living such as parking spaces or rental insurance.  

Other Expenses:  You’ll also want to take into account all the other monthly bills that you pay.  Utilities and transportation costs can vary greatly from person to person, so you want to make sure that these expenses are taken into consideration while searching for apartments.

Do Research:  Every apartment is unique, and so are the expenses that go with them.  Be sure to ask if any utilities are included in rent, and also calculate other costs that are associated with an apartment such as parking spaces and commuting costs.   

Lifestyle:  Are you the type that likes to spend most of your time at home, or do you prefer to hit the town and go out often?  With all the great restaurants and nightlife in the South End, you may be the type that likes to go out on a daily basis.  If that’s the case, you may want to scale down on your rent costs, seeing as you won’t be spending much time at home.  On the other hand, if you work form home or don’t go out much, you may decide to spend a little more on rent to be more comfortable at home.
