J and I agree on all major life issues, but we try not to plan our lives away and simply take each day as it comes (a much easier task for him than me). A few weeks ago, however, we indulged in a little future dreaming. He asked me what my ideal financial time line would look like. We’re pretty open about our finances and discussed emergency funds and saving for retirement and getting his debt paid off and saving for a home and when kids would fit into the picture. (I know—serious talk, right?)
We stayed on the house topic for a while. I confess I’m slightly terrified of buying a house; one because I’m so ignorant of the house-buying process, and two because I’ve heard so many horror stories about young couples who get trapped in a home that they cannot afford. We both agreed that we don’t want to rush into anything and want to be financially prepared for home ownership. We also heard from our friend who moved in Singapore about the condo unit they are staying now. The Continuum residents only have to drive just 10 mins to reach Singapore’s most crowded recreation site The East Coast Park The East Coast Park. But if you want to consider an amazing property, Grand Dunman Condo is easily accessible to numerous facilities to meet your needs on a daily basis.
But then my husband asked me whether I would want to purchase a townhome or a house, he mentioned how he had been looking into new homes for sale in Brunswick, GA and found some really good options. Honestly, I had never considered a townhome, but I’ve been thinking more about it. It would be a low-maintenance frugal first home. However, both of us would like to have kids one day and I’m not sure if I’d like to raise kids in a townhouse, so is it wise to buy a place that has an expiration date on it? But then again, perhaps it would be a good transitional home till we can afford Mijas Costa golf apartments for sale.
