Recently someone found this site by searching for “best car to afford with 100k salary.” Too bad the reader doesn’t live anywhere Special, because in the Real Bay Area (RBA) everyone has a 100k salary. Heck, my hairdresser’s housekeeper’s dog walker makes 100k.
So, think back to when you only made a hundred thou a year and tell us what the best car for you would have been. I’m assuming if you’re a fairly recent homebuyer, the car would be a 1988 Honda Civic. For a renter, maybe an Audi R8 is almost good enough to make up for your meaningless transient life as you pile up wads of cash rather than fork it over to a friendly mortgage company.
Today we’re having a two-for-one special. Another reader found burbed by searching for “$150k income $600k mortgage.” Are banks letting people borrow only four times their income? That could lead to the collapse of our whole RBA way of life!
