I have been thinking about investing in a home, but cannot afford it without a loan. Unfortunately my credit state is not very healthy right now. Should I be buying a house?
The cards see that you are likely to come into a financial windfall soon. It may be a better paying job, or a minor inheritance that comes your way. Wait for the financial situation to improve before you decide to make the purchase. You will be a home owner, but it will take a little longer time and patience.
