It has now been about six months since we started our hunt to buying a first house. Still nothing… Not a single house has come on the market that we could even go look at.
Not even a shack! Well… to be fair, we have some tuff parameters to be met for where we live.
Side note: this post is going up a little late. Follow me on Instagram for more real time updates. I will have another house hunt update soon!
Our Plans on Buying a First House on a Small Budget
If you follow me on Instagram you might already know all the requirements we need to be met in order to buy our first home. Here is the background you need to know to get caught up.
We live in San Diego, which just so happens to be one of the top five most expensive cities to live in the United States. Making it pretty challenging for a moderate one income family to buy their first home.
That’s us… we are the middle class, one income family trying, to buy our first home in one of the most expensive cities in the country!
We have a plan! So make sure to go read all the details to the beginning of our journey to buy our first home.
What’s New on Our House Hunt Journey?
We have made some pretty significant changes to our plans on buying a first house. A new realtor, a new budget, and a new loan option. Get all the details in the video!
