Default Salaries

Hi,


With an expected total combined salary of 100,00nz dollars. What can we expect our standard of living to be like.

We will be renting in or around Wellington.

We have 2 children who are both at school.

I know this is a little vague, but any help or examples would be great.

Come up the coast, more house for your money, good schools and better weather. Lots of people commute daily into Welly to work.
Just noticed you come from Nottingham, that's where we lived. Now our doggy is living in doggy heaven, spoilt dog demands 2 beach walks a day. lovely this evening watching the sun set over Kapiti Island. Really does beat our dog walks in Nottingham.
Good luck

Hi Bbaybella.

Where about up the coast ?

We are NZ virgins ! I do not want to travel any more than 45 mins to Wellington Airport.

with a 100k in Wellywood, after tax I think you'llbe just about comfortable, not pretty good.
I think the cost of living here has gone up heaps in the last couple of years.

But welcome to NZ

Default Re: Salaries

may I suggest you have a look round Trademe for rental costs. Yes further outside Wellington Centre rents are going to be cheaper but you then have to factor in travel costs. You also will probably want to factor in the weather. Its not called Windy Welly for no reason.
Also you will want to factor in schools for the children.

I'd personally do a budget planner, try and work out outgoing from you disposal income each fortnight (most jobs pay fortnightly and you get taxed on every penny), so foods, travel, outings, school costs, utilities, clothes, doctors costs etc and then see what you can actually afford for rent then take your areas on that.

We are in Paraparaumu, is about 50min train ride to the city. Fine if you work in the CBD but a bit too long IMO if you then need to catch a bus further ie if you are working at the airport. Although having said that there maybe an airport shuttle from up here.
That's actually a question I need to know anyhow

So! Anyone know about an airport shuttle from the cost - how often does it run and how much?
