Jesse and I have been saving up for a house basically since our wedding. We are looking at houses all over South King County and Tacoma. We are really trying to follow some of Dave Ramsey's financial advice and he suggests doing a 15 year mortgage to save money.
We look for houses basically everyday. Our plan is to wait a year, unless we find something we really like and then we will try to go for it. In about 7-10 years our plan is to buy a bigger place and rent out of our first house. We would love to have a rental property to bring in extra income.
So the only thing we can really do right now is to keep looking and saving money.
