I’ve dreamed of a house for years. An old place with character; land for gardening and space for kids; somewhere to settle down for a nice long time.
We’ve taken the first step very recently: moved into an apartment close to where my husband works so we can start saving money. I think we can save more than enough for a down payment in the next three years (ideally, I’d like to buy a place by the time I’m 30, but I’m not going to push it if it’s not the right time yet by then). I think if we set up a savings account for it and watch it grow it’ll motivate us even more.
