I have a rough 5 year plan to save at least $1,500 per month for the next 5 years so that I can buy my own home. If my calculations are right and I do save at least $1,500 per month, I would save at least $90,000 and use $65,000 as down payment for a $500,000 – $650,000 home (new home preferred). I’d like to live in Los Alamitos and houses start at $600,000. I’d like at least 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths in case my family want to live with me especially my darling and aging parents.
Who knows what 5 years can bring like marriage, but regardless if I do find someone to spend my life with within the next 5 years or not, I’m saving up to find a nice home I can retire in. I’d like a nice backyard that is big enough for me to have bbq parties for family/friends.
I’m 34 years old. I will be 39 in 5 years. That’s a nice age, I think. Pretty excited that I have a goal to aim for. Will pray about it and hope the Lord opens the door for me when I’m ready, but it’s His timing I will abide by if He wills it.
