Re: 1st time home buyer

A "dream home" you can't afford, is more of a nightmare.  I agree with Strutte and JM, get your finances in order, buy a more realistic priced home (starter), build equity, and then move up in a few years, you don't want your first home to be a bad experience and you will hate being house poor.
