    We are both currently 25, though Darling Husband turns 26 in May. We are still years away from buying our first home and we’re okay with that. We will most likely be between 28-30 before we buy a home. We are working on paying off my car (I just bought it…my other was becoming a money pit and was old), our student loans, and build our savings. We will most likely have our first child in an apartment/duplex/condo and buy a home when they’re young. I hope it is a home we will stay in for a really long time!

    I bought my first place really young, and sold it about 3 years later. I moved on and from coast to coast and in between purchasing 6 houses before this one. This is now my 7th owned home, and my Fiance owns it with me. There have been so many occasions when I wished I rented, as previous posters have said. I tend to buy, renovate, sell, repeat. Sometimes I just want somebody else to be responsible for everything 🙂

    Do you still live in your first home? Yes but we’ve only been here a year and we bought new construction. We’re in the process of looking for a large plot of land to build our dream house. We are very lucky.
