Hello Deet & Christina;
You would be able to get a nice 2 bdrm apartment and maybe a house for $600 a month.
If you want to buy a home, i think the loan co. still has some first time home buyers loans. If your credit is very good, then it looks like you would have a nice tax write off for next year.
Owning your own home is one of the best investments.
To many people bought a home that was over priced and made a loan for more than they could afford.
Only make a payment on your home for 1/4 your months pay.1/4 for groceries,church,retierment,etc,1/4 for taxes,children or pets,clothes,1/4 for car payment,etc,you get the idea.
That is what we did. It is nice to have a mtgr.free home.
We are in a time for young or older people to buy a home. It would be one of the best things to do.
Find an area that you love. Buy a home that can grow as your family might grow.
I have been selling real estate since 1979, and when i am in a store or someplace out,i get people who i sold to back in the 80's, come over to see me and most of them still live in the same home.
I have this saying that i have said for years. "you have to love the home or i will not sell it to you, I don't want you getting mad at me when you are writting out the house payment"
Let me know what i can do for you.
