It is frustrating to find the economy so much favors families with both husband and wife working full-time jobs. Even if a man makes an above average wage, he would still struggle to buy a house and make ends meet with a car payment and a bit of extra-curricular expenses. Today I was disillusioned after revisiting my budget and calculating in extra expenses that would come with a house.
My Realtor doesn’t listen to me. He shows me houses that are simply out of the range which I asked for. That is so aggravating.
Either way, the last bid I made was already probably out of my budget. I am going to rent or find an inexpensive condo or something of that nature. I will save up for a 20% down-payment, which shouldn’t take over a year or two, me thinks. I do need a more accurate budget, however.
