    Default House or the baby??

    Hi Forum. I'm stuck. I found a place we really love and want to buy but we have only just started ttc. Now I don't know what to do. Put baby plans on hold for a while or go head first into both and see what happens? I just have a feeling that it would work no matter what. Am I crazy? Thoughts??

    I would buy the house & then TTC once settled into the house. We bought a block and started building before we started trying for DD who's is now 10months.

    We are settled in a house at the moment but this other place would be an investment to move into 3 or 4 years time. Something that will set our kids up for their future

    Personally I would just go head first into both, but that's just me.

    There will always be excuses to delay ttc and you would never end up doing it if you waited for the 'perfect time'.

    If it's an investment and you can make the finances work with a change of income, I'd go for it.

    If it is your 'perfect family' home, I would be more cautious. DH and I bought our perfect house (with all the bedrooms, great yard etc) at the same time as we started ttc. After 3 years with no success we hated the house and resented that it represented all that we couldn't have. We ended up selling it for a loss, just to try and move on.

    5 years later we now live in a much smaller house and it will be a bit of squeeze with the new bub, but well worth it.

    We are both agents so we are doing extensive research Thanks for the heads up though.

    Just jump in! Don't think about it! I'm sure you will manage both just fine!

    How old are you? Maybe you could buy it, wait a year, then start ttc?
