It’s just me.
I don’t have a wife and kids although I am not opposed to all that.
For now, I’m ten years out of college and it’s just me and my ugly dog. However, I did just make a big leap as far as adulting is concerned. I’m in social work so, I don’t make a great deal of money at this point. I have had to rent for the last decade and the fact I was building zero equity was really getting on my nerves. However, the amount I needed for a down payment far outpaced my ability to save. I thought it might just be a bust and I would spend my life in a poorly HVAC controlled apartment. Then, a distant relative came to the rescue. A second cousin found out about my housing predicament and came up with an awesome solution. His uncle, which would be related to me in some way I was incapable of figuring out, was moving to a nursing home. His house would be available to me to buy at a very reasonable price and a tiny down payment. It was the perfect solution. The house was certainly run down but it was structurally sound with a nice piece of property to boot. The HVAC was so outdated it hardly worked at all. Instead of simply replacing the old central air unit, I went with a series of mini split ductless HVAC units. It was perfect because I can heat or cool specific areas in the house individually. Plus, they are super efficient so I really won all the way around. I am so lucky to have this place!
