Any home buyer around? Are you still making offers above the listing price and getting out-bid?

I’m saving up for a first home (3-5 yrs out, 30k saved) and looking for insights on safe amount to spend. HHI 300k (very recently doubled), 30k student debt, children in next few years, 29yo. We enjoy spending on vacations and hobbies so lower fixed costs, and interested in FI. Trying to figure out a balance between getting a dream home but setting up a secure future. We live in NE so housing and tax is high and stressed by the sticker. Any insights would be appreciated

I went to community college 2 out 4 years to save money. I worked at Denny’s to earn money during college. Everything I made went to keeping the debt low. I drove a used Honda with 200k miles on it. I worked at the movie theatre filling popcorn bags to earn money. I graduated from a top 25 university with less than 12k in debt. And paid it off in two years bc I put as much of my paycheck towards paying back the loan.

Hope this helps anyone still struggling along in school.

What your ETH target

I wish I wasn’t adaptable. Humans aspire for a greater level of comfort and once achieved, adopt that as their new baseline. Because of this, somebody making $100k cannot simply comfortably revert back to a $50k lifestyle. The slow growth of personal wealth isn’t noticed as ideated. Instead, we are never satisfied.

Can you relate? Has your salary / net worth growth dramatically improved your quality of life?

Can someone help me understand how backdoor Roth works in my situation?

I contribute the $19.5K max to a 401K each year. Would backdoor Roth be (A) the ability to roll $6K of that $19.5K into a Roth? or (B) an incremental $6K that I could contribute to a separate IRA then backdoor into a Roth?

Asked another way, does backdoor Roth allow me to actually contribute $25.5K each year, or does it just allow $6K of my $19.5K contribution to build in a Roth?

Thanks!
