It is so frustrating being me sometime. All I want is my own home. I have a roof over my head but I want my own deeds in my name home. I am saving and researching and I am even going so far as looking at homes. You never know my good Lord could bless me with an enablement to get me there. My current home depresses me. I never chose to live here. I feel so restricted.
Anyways I have not got the benefits of parents or family members helping me out. So I might just have to move to another rental to save my sanity. Then take on 3 more jobs but then I would never see my sons. The choice to rent or buy has never been my choice. Why because the only parent I grew up with passed away during my studies. I was immediately thrown into debt and renting. I suppose going self employed will not help.
Do you own your own home? How did you get on this elusive ladder. The UK is fast becoming a nation of renters. The elites have us where they want us. I digress.
I feel for you I really do. I was lucky I stayed at my parents and saved up because the options were either a grotty council falt on the 199th floor or shelling out large sums of money to pay someone’s mortgage. No thanks, so I saved up for over a year and got my deposit to buy my place. It was a real struggle at first as I lost out on two previous properties but it was 3rd time lucky and now I have my own sweet home.
I don’t own my place and i’m really glad at this time. Only because the economy is so bad right now. And so many people here in the states are losing their jobs. Too shaky for me right now…plus i don’t need the added stress in my life right now. But people i do know who own love it….well as long as they can pay for it.. But you will get it when the right time comes. Everything happens at it’s own time. So for now i’m giving my money away. But i do hope in the next year or two to own. Moreno
