Can your first home purchase be an investment in your distant future?
There are many things to consider when buying your first home.  There’s the obvious location factor along with all the features you need (the required number of bedrooms and baths for the size of your family) and the thing you want (the big yard & the island kitchen). Yet wants and needs aside, for most of us it usually comes down to what we can afford.
