    My 21 year old son has bought his first house! After a year of looking in an "oil town" my son got a great deal on a house. House had been on the market for 82 days and gone thru 2 other offers which had fallen thru. Owners dropped original price by $50,000 but people had stopped looking at it assuming the house had already been sold. Upstairs had been totally redone and house inspection had been paid for by sellers.

    He plans on renting out 2 upstairs bedrooms and keep one for himself. Basement needs to be fixed up but can be rented out as it is. Rent for a bedroom in this town go from $800-$1200

    P.S. My son is a 3rd year apprentice carpenter!

    So proud of him. He was focused and has been saving money for a down payment since he got his first carpenter helper job when he was 16 years old. He literally has 3 pairs of jeans and probably 5 t-shirts.

    I'm going to do a SDM redemption to help him set up his new home. Fun for mom too!

    Congrats to your son, the world is his oyster!! By focusing and starting so young he should have very little stress later on in life and enjoy the fruits of his labour!!

    What an amazing brag. You did a great job with him. He is on the right track and will be probably mortgage free very young. Thanks for sharing and congratulations
