So dh and I are 23 and we are buying our first home! We move in next month. Its a trailer (I know I know) but its a huge 4+2 double wide. It was my moms and she is selling it to us. Its in great shape. Nice size porch and rooms. We will even have a storage building and a school room.
By the time I am 25 I will own my own home out right. We are giving her 5k from taxes and 5 k next year.

Its not a big beautiful house like I want but its a start and I'm pround to say I am a home owner. At 23.... wow.... yay me!!!!

Yay for you! We bought our first when I was 22 and exDH was 28. We sold it three years later :(. DH and I are going to buy in about 5 years, and I'll be 30.

Um...a trailer? Well okay then. 

When you buy the whole trailer park, I want pics.

Congrats :) are you planning any exciting renovations to make it different than how your mother kept it?

How did you decide that was the area you wanted to live in long term? I'd love to buy instead of own, but I can't commit to one area long term. I feel like we have to be flexible and follow the job market.

That is awesome! Once you own it out right just think of how much money you will be able to save. Congrats!
