I'm a home owner. Well .... I technically have a mortgage, but it motivates me to keep the place looking nice and keep up with the household chores.

Is the best way to go!  Nothing offers the peace of mind like home ownership!  Renting sucks!  :thumbsup: :peace:

My son and daughter in law just bought a house for 675,000 give or take. In livermore ca. They got 100,000 from my daughter  in laws mom. Ver6 generous.  The taxes on the house alone is 700.00 a month. It's a 3bd 2bh  move in ready. Not sure what the house payment will be. I'm kind of shocked about the price. I guess they qualified and know what their doing. The price  is not all that outrages in Ca.

Unfortunately, no I do not. I am also unable to do it at the moment because of my current job. However, that does not mean I cannot start saving up for the down payment so as to avoid a lengthy mortgage.

Unfortunately, I have yet to own my own home. It is a dream of mine but given my financial situation, it is not a priority for me. However, I am in the process of saving up for a sizeable down payment for my dream home. :)

I'm officially homeless as of October 12th of this year. My house sold so fast and we had to get out in 30 days. I am living in a friend's house until I find a house I can afford. It's a great house, but it's the first time for me not to have my own home.

Doesn't feel real good.  :-\

I am currently renting, but I am looking into rent-to-own home programs. My goal is to buy a home by my 30th birthday

I have a giant mortgage, but I'm hoping to pay it off early. My goal is financial independence so I won't have to work anymore (but may keep my job because I genuinely enjoy it). :)

We are homeowners....still have a mortgage though.

We are wanting to down size and get a smaller home now that the kids have moved out. 

We have thoroughly enjoyed this home and the location is wonderful for raising a family.  It's time for another family to enjoy this place.
