bubbledot Posted August 21, 2011 Share Posted August 21, 2011 I really need advice. Please do not judge or jump to hasty conclusions. Here's my situation in a nutshell: I'm 24 (almost 25) and I have lived with my parents for my entire life. No, I'm not a loser. I work full time. My parents' dream is to own a house. We live in a small apartment right now, and we all feel cramped. There is tension because they want to buy a house, and they want me to live with them. We are very close and it's not that I don't want to, but I'm concerned that for the rest of my life, I will never get my own space! I'm 25 so naturally within the next couple years, what if I get married? My future husband and I can't share my parents' kitchen! Here are my options: 1) I could buy my own condo right now. My parents don't want me to do this because then I can't help them financially with buying THEIR house. I'm also not sure if I'm ready for this yet. 2) I could move with them to a new house that has a more private area for me. Everybody's happy until I get married. They would have to sell the house, or I would have to move out and buy my own house. Also, most three bedroom homes don't really have separate private areas....but maybe I just haven't seen one yet. 3) My parents and I could both buy a "two decker" which is a multifamily house. But this is more expensive and I'm not sure if I can deal with the responsibility. Also, I'd rather not be trapped in a mortgage. What if I decide to go to graduate school? I feel really stressed out over this. I don't know what to do. I'm afraid of making a bad decision and then being stuck with it later. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
