My husband and I went round and round for the last few years about buying a home. He got a job that is secure, training soldiers, meaning there's no chance of him loosing his job in this economy. So we decided to buy a home. We should hear back from the bank tomorrow. Have 3 homes picked out, then go through the process with the VA and the bank.
Anyways, I always argue, what if something huge breaks and we have to fix it? Rather than a landlord having to fix it. He says, we're throwing our money away now that we will be planted somewhere, owning is better than renting....and acutally $200 - $300 less a month for a mortgage than rent where we will be.
I was fearful, but am now getting excited that our babies will grow up in a home. I have moved every year of my life since I have been 18, it's getting old. I'm 32.
Did anyone have the same reservations like me, but then glad you made the decision?
