Single Consultants

What’s your net worth and how many years out of college? I feel like on my current salary I will never been be able to not stop paying rent. Any advice on how you broke the rent paying cycle? I feel like the only way to break the cycle is to find a SO and eventually move in together. Nice to know the future solution to my financial troubles is tied to love!

I saved up for awhile after starting with D and am now working on buying a home- by myself. Mortgage will either be the same or less than rent I’m currently paying. It can be done if you budget and work towards it like any other life goal.

Pay down your debt and save up to pay the down payment to get your own place. Mortgage rates are low and your monthly payment would probably be around the same or even less than what you’d pay on rent. At least this is what I’m doing. Don’t know if it’ll work but I’m sure as hell not waiting for a SO to achieve my goals.

When i started out I had investment and saving goals and then modeled my spending accordingly.. investing and multiplying money is key.. bought a property really early on in my career which forced me to save and now its all paid off.. debt free living😊.. dont spend and then see how much u save/invest.. decide on an investment goal and model spending accordingly..

You don't necessarily need to save 20% down. Look into 2nd mortgages or PMI.
