your take home for the month before ANY savings, insurance, car payments, retirement, student loans will be ~3950. average rent in the seacoast area (dover, portsmouth, rochester, newmarket) is ~2.2k for a two bedroom, as a low estimate. that means ~1100 for rent, probably 1250 total including utilities. i think that’s livable but you should def consider living in one of the lower col areas, like rochester or somersworth. help save some money and pay off loans (if you have them). good luck, and congrats on the job!
