THE STARTER: WHEN IS THE RIGHT TIME TO BUY A HOUSE

House Lights Turned on

“Affordability is key.”


my first purchase

Buying your first home is such a daunting task. And the reason I say your first home, is because some people have been known to sell what they have invested in the house for an upgrade. But usually, people have a starter that is somewhere in the ballpark of about 2,000 square feet. It won’t cost that much, whether it’s a condo for $150,000 or a little more, or a ranch style home for Related imagejust over $200,000. That is because people buy their first homes when they don’t have an income that is high enough to buy the home they really want for themselves. But what about the age in which you should buy. Because age and income go hand in hand.

older more settled in

As you get older you most likely will notice you are able to make more income than in the past. That is because you have amassed enough knowledge to grow your income. Waiting until this point means you have made enough money to buy yourself an even bigger home. One that is more of your dream home than your starter home. Hopefully you can have this house between Image result for dream homethe ages of 35 years at the youngest and 45 years. Now buying a house for the first time this late in life is a waste of money you lost leasing. Yet on the other hand how many people own their dream house in America?

saving is key

How come we have such a hard time saving for the future? Reality is not that we can’t save money. We love indulging in the things that are around us. We want to vacation and go to restaurants, or buy significant others gifts. Problem with that is have you ever tried keep a rolling tally in your mind of the money you spend on clothes, car, accessories, and vacations over the years. Imagine the money you were going to spend on a lot of these things you kept. And over a 10 to 12 year period you bank it. You could put a down payment on one nice property.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
