A Dream Home With An Alfresco

This is incredibly embarrassing. I'm a first time home buyer, and nothing seems to be crushing my soul more than realizing my current income is not enough to get approved for a loan. 

Pros to my current position: love what I do and the people I interact with.

Cons to my current position: apparently can't afford to buy a home. 

Now that's not to say that my savings isn't on track. It is. However, what they don't teach you in school is that life is bloody expensive when you start paying for your own bills, taxes, insurance, car, rent, doctor's fees, etc.  And your savings? Well that gets depleted fast if you have an emergency, and it takes a LONG TIME to save up. Oh yeah, they also don't stress the importance of understanding how home loans work. 

Anyways, enough rambling. The point of the gofundme, and the CRAZY amount connected to it... it's the cost of buying a small home in my city. It's not a fancy corner lot, or big home by any means. One car garage that's a tight squeeze, perhaps even seriously damaging the car if I open the doors all the way.  Two bedrooms, the front room more like a small study, and the main bedroom quite large (this is a selling point for me).

But guess what, it's a reasonable commute to work (within 30 minutes), it's charming, I make sure it's still on the market, they remodeled the inside so everything looks fresh and is new, and they have an outdoor apartment. 

And most importantly, do you ever just see a place and go... that's it, that's the place for me. Well, thats what happened to me. So, long rambling story short? I made this GoFundMe, with the full price, and thought I would ask the world to help. 

The end. 
Ps, if you do donate, thank you so much. Everyone who donates will have their name put into a giant frame of names as an art piece in the dream home (:
