So my SO and I want to build a house in the future. It’s one of our dreams and honestly I can’t wait for it to happen, although I know it will be a few years before we can break ground. With that said, I’ve realized him and I have two very different opinions on the matter. I’d like to save up for the next 5 years and be able able to build our dream home on a lot of our choosing somewhere in the country. He wants to save up for two or three years and then buy a lot, plop a trailer on it, save for a few years, and then finally build a house. I told him that trailers loose their value and so I sort of feel that doing that would be a waste of our money since we wouldn’t get back nearly as much money as we’d pay for the trailer. He says that in the meantime we could put money into the property if we buy a lot sooner rather than later, since we’d be paying towards the property and not wasting money on rent. Which do you think would be a better idea my fellow bees?
