The truth is that my rent is just not a good deal and I have been saving up my money looking to find a starter house, something small and cheap that I can find the down payment for. I am pretty sure that I am going to have to look at the sort of place that is not exactly ready to live in, or else I am going to have to keep saving my money for a lot longer. The first place I found that was practical needed some pretty serious HVAC repair in Queens, along with a good deal of other stuff. Some of it is stuff that I am pretty sure that I could do on my own if you really think the videos that you see on the internet tell you all of the stuff that you need to know. I doubt that this is really the case. Fortunately for me my uncle is a plumber, although he probably is not the sort who is going to work entirely for free.
Of course once I had the down payment, the monthly expense of owning a house would be a lot less than what I am paying out right now. So I would save a lot of money over time. It is going to be great, but obviously that money is going to be going right out the door. That is especially true if I can no figure out how to do the work on my own. So right now I am thinking about that right away, trying to figure out how much work I can do and exactly what it is going to cost if I can or if I can not. I need to know that I can find a way to turn the place into a good home to live in.
