Mid 20's, Should I buy a house?Hello. I am 4 months into working and considering buying a house. My budget is <$150k, plan on putting 10% down. I'm looking for more of a fixeruper. The house would be in downtown Birmingham near a college. I have 2 friends who will be looking for an apartment in the city who will pay rent. Should I buy a house? I feel this will be a good investment because after my friends leave there will always be renters with it being close to a college. This will also get me out of my parents house :).December 19 2011 - Birmingham11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
