It's a condo at about $175,000, USDA approved (no down payment, minimal closing costs, low rate), upcoming city with values rising, 3 bedroom / 2 bath.
I'm going in alone and would barely be able to (but still possible) make the payments alone, so I'm renting one of the rooms out which essentially makes the rent cheaper than actually renting a place, plus the tax breaks.
I know it's a great deal, but I'm scared to make such a huge decision. The other thing is, I like the place a lot, it's super nice, built in 2009, and updated pretty well, but there were some other places for a bit more that were extremely nice and I liked better... But in this market, it's been IMPOSSIBLE to get an offer to stick on any of them. This place is the only one that stuck.
I really need advice, am I jumping into this too soon? Is this really a good investment like everyone around me tells me it is?
