So I'm in my 2nd year teaching and got my first pink slip this year. I got word this week that I will have my job back next year but the scare has got me and my hubby thinking... Should we wait until I have tenure to buy a house? My husband and I were thinking we would start looking for a place this summer. The prices are right and the interest rate is still pretty low. I HATE the location of our apartment and I would really love to get out of here soon. I have been dreaming of owning a home longer than I had been dreaming of marriage! However, if I lost my job, we would almost have to look at moving in order for me to get a job. I'm in a small University town where the school districts hire from within or who their connected to and quite frankly, I'm not really connected here (I went to the rival university). The pros and cons are so equal, I thought maybe I'd post this here to see if you guys could come up with something I couldn't!
