    I was 35 and husband was 38. We always feel like we got a late start and are playing catch-ip!

    I think I was 31. Reason being. . .when I was in my 20's, the interest rates were around 18 percent! We saved and actually built our own in the country. . . .for our dogs of course! lol

    We were both almost 25, and we are still in that same house 29 years later.

    The voices in my head may not be real, but they have some good ideas!
    I have nothing to do today and hope to be half done by noon.

    36 and DH was 38. Just last year! We got a late start but we wanted to have a decent down payment and a contingency fund saved. Worked out well because we ended up buying in a totally different city than we were first considering and we love it.

    In the neighbourhood where I lived, the small, semi-detached homes were selling for half a million. I lived in a property where I didn't have to pay rent (just covered property taxes, utilities, repairs, etc.) so I didn't really think about buying. On my salary, there wouldn't have been a chance!!

    After DH and I got married, we rented for one year (when our lease ran out) and then began looking for a home. That gave us enough time to get to know our town well enough to know where we wanted to live.
