I'm just curious. DF and I are getting married in one week and we want to buy a house sometime next year. I'm just wondering how older everyone was when they bought their first house?

Thanks!

I was 26yrs. old, single, and had tired of renting apartments for five years. It was the best thing I ever did.

The first house I bought with my grandmother, I was 25 I believe. I was 31 when I bought my second house with my husband.

I bought my first at 39. Almost 40. It was a big step for me because I always had a "thing" about taking on a 30 yr. debt! It completely freaked me out!

It completely freaked me out! That is what freaks me out too. I already have student loans for the next few years and adding more to it makes me ill.

I bought mine when I was 25 but didn't take possession until this year b/c we chose a long closing date and the house was just finished being built two weeks before we moved in in mid-August.

My husband and I bought our first house when we were 23. We lived there for 18 years, then built the house we live in now. That was 7 years ago.

I'm 25 and renting. The house prices in the UK are just far too high.
