So I am 20 years old with a full time job and a fiancé ( I love saying that ) so we are starting to think about moving out. When the subject first came up last year we both agreed that when I pass my driving test that is when we sort out money and start to look at places to move into.
But we are now thinking of buying a house. A lot of people have different views on whether buying a house or not is a good idea and I am so confused on whether it is a good idea to do so or not.
I say a couple of people are for it. It is me. I would love to move out and get our own space. Have my own book case full of books. And some wine in the fridge for when we have friends come over. And to know that at the end of the mortgage we own our own house.
The other people I was talking about did make good points witch I think we are going to be listening to. The main one is that even though we live together now it is in one room with my parents and we have not experience paying bills. We do not really know how we are going to react with the responsibilities of having all the bills that bleed us dry and keep our bank accounts empty.
But because of something my mum has said we are now stuck on renting and where. Mums wise words are “Do not rent privately because you are just paying somebody else’s mortgage”. Great.
So yes, we do not know exactly what we are going to do but I am so excited to pass my driving test. So that I can drive obviously, and so that we can properly get into looking at houses and getting furniture. So freaking excited. Well I hope you have had a good day.
