- Wedding: December 2012
Hello again bees, ever since FI & I got engaged I’ve been thinking of nothing but finally being able to own a home together. We both have great credit, but as of now FI is looking for a job so we dont have money for a downpayment on a home, but I’m hoping this changes in the future. We still have 8 months until our wedding, so if he is able to find a job before summer I think we would be able to save enough to get ourselves a brand new home (130-150k), but because of how slow things are right now we are starting to think of having to go to an apartment first. I’m not saying there is anything wrong with this, I just personally see it as money beeing thrown away that could be going to the place where you plan to live the rest of your life. We arent too big on beginner homes either so thats not really an option for us.
So I was wondering, how many of you bees have had to go with an apartment first, and how many have had the pleasure of owning a home before or as newlyweds?
*We are getting help from family to pay wedding (& are leaving out a lot of things to save) & the job he is looking for is set to pay very well, enough to live comfortably in our area.
