My boyfriend and I decided to buy our own house. We knew it was going to be difficult, but we didn’t think it would be this difficult. We had found the perfect house — it’s in a great neighborhood, beautifully updated, and the best part is it’s selling for less than it was worth. Awesome! But, not exactly. The inspection report was filled with repairs and replacements needed that will cost us around the same as the down payment!
Suddenly my boyfriend wants a townhome, or a small house as a starter home, or even a condo. while I’m worried about getting a good investment, because I know we probably won’t end up staying longer than five years in a townhome or a condo as we hated apartment living.
Sharing walls is not the long-term solution, but is it the short-term solution? Should I be more worried about what’s right for us, than what’s right for my wallet? Or would what’s right for my wallet eventually be what’s right for us?
