Fears and Facts about buying your first home

Fear #6: I should wait to buy a home until I get married.

Fact: There is no reason to wait.

When most people say they want to wait until they’re married to buy their first home, what they’re actually struggling with are two distinct issues: First, would it be better to wait until they had two incomes?  And second, will my future spouse like the home I choose?

If marriage is not in your future, then neither of these issues matters, and buying is the right decision. Putting off the decision to buy the right home is never the solution.  Getting into the game as soon as possible is.

By the way, if marriage is in your future, then buying is also the right decision.  If your future spouse doesn’t like the home, you can rent it out or sell it and use the proceeds along with your possible dual incomes to buy one you both like.  If your spouse likes the home, problem solved.

The National Association of Realtors reports that 30 percent of first-time U.S. homebuyers are, in fact, single.  They didn’t wait, so why should you?

[I purchased my first home before I was married. It was the best financial decision I ever made.]
