Although we have intentions to live with our parents for like EVAAAAR ;) we had an appointment today to see if we could, at our current rate of employment (haha! who am I kidding, my working contract is up), get approved for a mortgage. We won't know numbers until Friday but we had a place in mind that we wanted to check out.
Today we took our first tour of a condo. I was first attracted to the considerably low price. And the pictures looked great!
But the condo was located close to the highway so there would be a constant stream of noise pollution. We are just interested in looking and getting the mortgage process started (since I may even find out on Friday that we aren't approved) but not too sure when (or if -- haha mom just joking) we will move out.
So do we stay at home and save money or move out and taken on the responsibility of a mortgage? Mom has suggested we rent but one bedroom apartments are over $1000 which would be the price of a monthly mortgage payment.
Side note: I know that it's weird that I live at home but I honestly enjoy it and think the benefits far out weight the loss of privacy -- which isn't an issue with either of us. And I think I'm so used to the Korean way of living that I don't find it all that bizarre.
Any thoughts about what you would do? Move out and gain freedom or stay home and save money?
