House Journey Day 1

So, after having spoken to a bank etc.

We now have a 5 year plan to save $60,000 for a down payment on a house. I hope we can do it. I still am concerned that even with that much of a down payment, that our bad credit past will haunt us. I hope not.

I would really appreciate any comments about how others have done it in a similar situation.



  1. I hope it works out for you. You seem to really want it. As I've stated to you before though, having a house isn't the be all and end all of existence. Make sure you want to do this for the right reasons, not status reasons.

  2. No, it is not for status reasons. My wife & I both want a house for being able to have a backyard, more space for our daughter to play, & to build something to leave to our kids one day, just to be able to call a home our own.
