It not that much to raise kids. Lets be honest! I have three and they have everything. From cars to computers to dirt bikes. Oldest car they own is a 2002 and even a new dirt bike 2006! He made $3333 a month. Payment is $1400. You could make it. $244k on a 1982 house 5 years ago? You did some re-fi then.

Ok it is not an area where you want to be. I guess it's like what they say about Gastonia. Crime, bad schools on and on.

Do you want to rent or buy. Seriously I can help you. I don't want to sell you anything but I want your kids to be in a good area in good schools whether you are buying or renting. I have 4 kids too. They are big now though.

I have been keeping quiet just reading along not wanting to get involved but I must -

I do not know who is making $40k a yr and actually living in a home but I agree with Tornado Alley - impossible

$40k a yr in NC, claiming married, no other exemptions or deductions earns you at a bi-weekly rate 1168.81 x 2 = $2337.62 per month

Unless there is other money coming in - this would barely cover the cost of elec, water, phone and food

No government help? I am not saying that I know you nor that my life is better. It just sounds like "things" don't add up!

We will probably rent first, need great schools, I have a special needs child so schools are first. My husband is staying with a freind in AJ and he loves the schools, but i havent done much research on them, mostly Queen Creek and Chandler and east mesa.
