Okay so my husband and I found the house of our dreams. Nothing too big and not to small. It's 79,000. We need to come up with $1000 to move in, and then our mortgage would be 500 a month. We live in an apartment now and are paying 550. My parents think that we are being stupid if we don't ask for their opinion. They think we should wait a year to save our money. The thing is, we have 2 kids (14 months and 1 month) and we want them to have a safe home to live in, we also have a dog (border collie) and he has no place to run. This house has a back yard. We have a 6 month lease at the apartments we are at, so its not like we would be moving right away. We are currently working on still saving the 1000. My problem is, my parents are getting all mad because they think we are rushing it and actually tell me everyday that we cant do it. That it would be too much money. It's not their lives...its ours. How can I get them off my back?

It may be that your parents are worried about you because they've already been through this process. Even if you can get into a house with only $1,000 (that's crazy low), you're going to need a lot of extra money for all sorts of expenses. Owning a home comes with a lot more costs than just the mortgage. If you've already worked through all the extra costs, then maybe explain that to your parents. If you haven't thought about all the extra costs, then you need to look into that and work out how you're going to cover it. GL!
