Our first home!!!!

Alright so, Me and my SO and our daughter are finally moving out of his mothers house! I'm a young mom, will be 18 in less than a month. SO is 21. DD is 6 months, almost 7. And we thought moving out would be impossible. Renting is stupidly expensive here.. and government funded housing is kind of impossible to get approved for.

So.. thankfully, we have a family friend who is a real estate agent, and well, were buying a house! Which we found out is more affordable than renting, and our money isn't going down the drain!! plus, its OUR house. :)

Well, we looked at a few and fell in love with a cozy townhouse in our pricerange. The taxes on it were very high, but just as we went to the office to write an offer, the house got sold right from under us. Me and SO are looking at a few more promising places. One is a single family house in the county and the taxes are much cheaper. More house for our money! Ugh, please wish us luck. We NEED more space. There isn't much around here that is actually in a good area, with good schools. We want the best for DD... We have to stay for 3-5 years in order for the program that were in go through. I'm excited, worried, happy all at the same time. I hope we find our home sweet home soon <3

Good luck!

I think a detached single family home will be easier to sell when moving up in the future.
