Infographic: Digs Debunked
Welcome to the land of amazing apartments, complete with perfect locations, unbeatable views and often freakishly attractive neighbors. These are the places of dreams, where you can work a really-cool-but-low-paying job and still manage to have an unlimited shopping budget. This land is called television. We took a closer look at the salary-to-rent ratios of some of our favorite TV characters, and this is what we found.
-All salary percentages are calculated based on the formula (rent x 12)/salary.
-Salaries are based off of information from the shows, as well as information from the online salary database, Payscale.com.
-If an actual property couldn’t be located, prices were taken from comparable properties in the same area.
-All mortgages are based on a 30-year term with 7% interest rates.
