I'm going to buy a house. Wow I went from being terrified to rent one to wanting to buy one. Look at me grow. lol

Started crunching numbers, planning, shopping, and I got excited. Obviously this all hinges on how much support I get. I'm thinking I'll rent until at least one kid moves out and I'll buy a small house. This will give me time to save money. I'll get a 15 year mortgage that I can pay on my salary alone (worst case scenario) but my goal would be to pay it off in 10. If all goes according to plan I'll have a paid off house by the time I'm 70. At that point I could retire. Amazing right??
