A lot of people have been very pessimistic towards my intention on buying a house this summer. Well, I'm here to tell you that it's going to happen. You can't tell me its improbable to be successful and expect me to lay flat on my back. No. You tell me it's not normal for a young woman of my age to be buying into real estate, I'm going to prove to you that I don't do normal. If I see a house like this one and I have the money to do so, I am going to buy it. "well sometimes things don't always work out the way you want them to..." he says. I say "If I put my mind to do something, it will happen and I will make it work." You know me well enough by now to realize that I'm not going to let other people put me down. I don't take the easy roads, and I don't settle for less than what I deserve. Buying a house has pros and cons sure, but they are the same pros and cons that other home buyers experience and are no more inclined to overcome them than myself. A house like this might be perfect for me to step into. It's not a mansion and it probably won't be my last house. Ellensburg is a renter's market and I don't see too many problems with finding someone to rent it when I'm ready to move on. I may not have a lifetime of experience with money but I can tell you that my conservative spending habits have kept my bank in the green, and will always continue to do so. I have family and friends who are more than willing to help me with this venture so its not like I'm soloing it. So people, stop being 'fraidy cats and grow a pair. I have no fear of this so stop trying to act like you care by telling me to give up now. When I hear you say something to the effect of: "maybe this isn't a good idea..." the only thing I hear is "I'm too afraid to do that and I don't think you should do it either." I am not you. I am a smart girl and I may learn a few lessons in doing this, but as I learn it now I will be more prepared in my future. So I dare you to try to tell me no.
