This should be re-evaluated. In 2018 we bought our 4 bedroom house for 189k which was cheap for a new build. Now my home value has increased to 230k. Buying a similar new home from the same builder in 2022 would cost you 240k minimum. That is a huge increase in the course of 3 years. We are a family of 4 with a combined gross income of around 105k and we get by with a little extra a month. I'm talking like 100 bucks left.my grocery bill has increased from 100 dollars to 150 bucks since last year.

Hi
We are in the process of immigrating from The Eastern Cape South Africa to El Paso Texas.
How much should your salary be for a family of 5 per month?

Thank you
