When I bought my first home married then my age was around thirty five I got a VA loan and been approved. The second home here at the school house was in my early fifties. Buying a home by age 35 is worth it now and later. Photo online.

My friends say that in america and canada and other countries, it’s better to rent than to own a house because of taxes, so thats good John.

We were 28 when we bought our first home. It was a frame house in town, but had a very nice deep yard. We lived there for about 5 years before we moved to the nice brick home in the rural village that we lived in for over 20 years. We both loved the layout of that house.

We bought our home when I was 48. When we lived in Monte Carlo the apartments were too much expensive. We decided to buy here in Switzerland to have the house ready for the day we would have retired.

That depends on your definition of 'home'. I bought my tiny boat with my life savings when I was 22. Bought my first house with a mortgage when I was 36.

@amadeo I also think that it was the right time. I am glad that my ex and I didn't buy a house, because we broke up and it was nice that we didn't have to worry about selling a house.
