I was wondering at the current loan interest being near 10%, how much money do recent residents have to set aside to help with minimum repayment per month. I have a family and I am looking to buying a home during residency (hopefully it's in a location not too expensive or out of line). I know that residency itself is going to pay peanuts but I just want to know how many peanuts I have to spare. Most residents usually get paid about the same but loans can differ significantly. I am set to owe near 400k, so I am quite worried about the ability to have a big enough place so I can study but also support my family at the same time. Thanks I really appreciate your response.
