I wish I could say that I am sitting on a pile of down payment and waiting to pounce at the exact right moment. I am not. I only just recently started putting money together for it. I am in my early 30's. Why so late? Well, life happened. The areas that I will be living in, I can't see myself being able to buy a house for less than 350K. I only have about 10K saved up. Realistically, I won't be able to buy a house for 2 years if I diligently saved anything I can . Even if BF gets on board and contributes, it will take us about 2 years to be able to put a decent down payment. Do you think I would have missed an opportunity by then? I am having a mini panic attack. I would appreciate your thoughts on this topic. Thanks.
