I dream of buying my own little corner

It so happened that I rent because of housing problems , of course there is a parent's house where I can come, but my brother lives there with whom I often disagree, sometimes staying at home becomes unbearable, I don't want to hope for a man, I want to have my own little corner where I can come at any time and which I can call my home. How are you with housing? do you rent or have your own house?

I own my home. It's paid off. I worked a lot of extra jobs to pay it off early. It's on a 150'x100' lot with fruit trees, vegetable and flower gardens and a workshop in the garage. I live across from a creek in an isolated neighborhood that's about 7 miles from a small town of 4k. It's between the ocean and the mountains in a rainshadow. When I first got married, we rented for two years before we purchased a home. We sold that place and moved west across country to where I live now. Owning a home is preferable but there are advantages to renting too. You don't pay for upkeep and repairs as a renter.

Your corner really looks like a dream, yes, repairs and expenses are natural, but I want to have my own, albeit a modest corner, this is my goal for the coming years

@saytama It is a good goal to have. It's an investment too.

Of course, shooting is good, but having your own is better, there is something to strive for

@saytama 'shooting'??? What is this supposed to mean in the context of renting a house or a flat? I haven't got a license to own a weapon. Who or what should I shoot anyway?

@MALUSE I use a translator, sometimes it happens just like that, the words are not translated correctly, I meant that renting is also good)

@saytama In Romania, the prices are lower, a house with a yard and a large garden, somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 euros, in the rural area!

When I was at your stage of life (young and single) I lived in a tiny boat! It didn't have many fancy conveniences but I loved it, I lived there for 8 years. And meanwhile I saved up and did extra work. Eventually I was able to buy a house with a mortgage. Then I met my partner and luckily he had the same goals and the same attitude about money. We both saved and paid off as much of the mortgage as we could. Then we moved to a bigger house and did the same again. Finally (5 years ago) we were able to buy our current house without having to borrow any money. We have a nice 5-bedroom house with a big garden. I really wanted to do it while our children are still young so they can have plenty of space to play with their friends. I think that if possible it is best to work at this before having children, it wouldn't be good if you had to work two jobs to pay the bills when you have children, you would never see them!

@Fleura Now there are very few people I can rely on , over time I realized that you can only hope for yourself , only by your own efforts you can achieve something , alas , but this is the truth of life

I rent. I have owned homes but renting an apartment is so much easier. Management takes care of all the upkeep and you pay no real estate tax. Renting is the life for me.

It 's not so easy with rent , the prices for it are almost the entire local salary , if you don 't earn , then things are bad

@saytama You’re right. Renting is expensive but so are mortgages and taxes.
