We are living with my hubby's father. he is very sick and can not be left alone. he wants to die in the house he built 56 years ago. then we will have the house when he dies.

We rent right now.  I think we will for a few more years, we need to figure out exactly where we want to settle once LO is school age.

We just bought our house with a mortgage. We had planned on starting to pay it down right away but life had other plans. My van went down and will need more work then its worth so we will be purchasing a new vehicle and have a car payment. :( After that is paid off, we'll start paying down our mortgage. Our goal is to have it paid off in 15 years.

We are renting since we are a military family. No point in buying right now.

See if he will bring the house up to code and sell the house with a little bit of land and then sell you the rest of the land on a land contract. That way you get the low nothing down VA financing and he gets money. Then he will still get money from the land contract with you on the rest of the land.
