    WoW 1st house

    Well I guess I have been in the middle of buying a house and my wife and I finally found one. It has been a long proccess and let me tell you I am looking to stay in this house for a long time.

    My wife and I are 22 yrs old and we have a 14 month old and this is are 1st home purchase. It was very cool in the beging but now that it is close to the end and I am starting to see what the bills look like, it is starting to scare me a bit. I know that I have to work hard and I know that I will stay on top of everything but it is scary jumping from mom and dad's house into a house payment. None the less I have started a life with my family and I am so very happy and lucky to do so at a young age. I guess I am writing becasue like Rhome said being on here as much as I am, it feels like a 2nd family. Thank you for reading and have a good day.


    PS: For all of those that are waiting for pics of the horizontal mag pouch, I am sorry. I have real busy. I promise I will try to have them up this week. Thanks and sorry.

    Congratulations! Keep going don't stop at buying one. Buy two or three and make them rentals. It's the only way to make abuck these days. You are young enough to get started. We bought our foirst at your age and then bought some rentals make it pay your way.

    Congrats on the house. It is a little (OK, lot) daunting at first, but once you get in and start fixing it up the way you like without getting a landlord's permission, it is really nice.

    The biggest piece of advice I would give (not that you asked for it) is to try setting aside a little money each month designated strictly for "home repairs". That way it won't hurt so bad when something goes out and you have to replace it right away.

    It sure is quite an event! Most pleased for you.

    To show my age, I recall my first house (not rented) back in 1973!!! For sure, one of the early realizations was - ''heck - this is spendy''!!

    But ..... the plusses do and should outweigh the fiscal apparent minusses and you now have your castle. Nurture it and your family and, protect it well.

    Congrats...Just Remember...

    When you get started, it will seem like a lot of bills, costs, problems, etc., but after you have been at it for a few years...it will only be lots of bills, costs, and problems, ect....

    Enjoy...

    Dont be afraid to get your hands dirty and do as much as possible yourself. Thats the only way you'll learn how to be a good homeowner, and it will save you a bundle too. Just be sure to know when your in over your head, then call in a pro.

    Congrats! Enjoy it, and like others said...get your own hands dirty. Not only will you learn a lot, but you'll save yourself a fortune in labor costs (ever seen a plumbing bill?).

    Lol - at least you didn't buy your first home in Northern VA! I bought mine here about 2 years ago now. Talk about over-priced! Granted I don't have to worry about a wife and baby.

    No worries though. Keep your head screwed on straight and you'll do ok. Congrats again! Owning a house rocks...especially on tax return day!

    Congtats!!! There is nothing as satisfying as owning your own home. Also a darn good investment. My daughter and her husband recently bought their first home, and they purchased a home warranty policy. It's already paid for itself. Again congrats, and I hope you all enjoy it.

    Congratulations on the new house! And don't sweat the nervousness, I expect most of us were like that on our first house. After buying eight or nine it's sorta like buying a new shirt or something.....
