Norway/household income in norway
I was offered a position in Norway with a salary of 608,000. Is it a good salary? On what percent of cost and salary is it for Norway?
We are a family of four, two sons (one will be going to the university in the USA and the other one will be going with us).
What shall I expect with that salary? House mortgage, cars, trips?
I would just like to know what really I should expect.
That is what an engineer in the oil business with 10 years experience would expect to make. It is about 40% over the national average.
A teacher with a bachelor degree will make 450k/year.
If it is the only income of the family you should be able to make a decent living if you can keep the expenses down to reasonable levels.
Here is the standard budget for living in norway in 2011, mark it up with a few percent for 2013:
If your spouse can find some work also, you'll be just fine, and a bit above the average. Then any normal mortgage and a car or two ought to be no problem.
