I'm a much older goat, now! Retired from a rotten job working for an obnoxious, inept arsefardle, and focusing on gunsmithing and developing a machine shop. Glad to see you're still kicking! And another year older, I might add...
Here is the thing. I live in land down under called Australia and property prices here are 12 to 15 times your average wages before tax. I am 32 and still renting and no hope in hell I can save 20% deposit to get loan even if I live off noodles for few years ( or may be I can if I only live off noodles ). There are many reasons for property prices so high here but I am just questioning what it takes to buy a first home ?
How long did it takes you to buy your first home ?
Thank you for your responses.

I was 30 and a big chunk of the down payment was the only stock option grant that ever paid off for me. It turned into a money pit with neighbors from hell. I sold it at 36 and swore I'd never buy a home again.
