If there was enough room in the house for each of you to have some private space, then yes, for a short period of time, say 6 months to a year. It can be rough, but still have advantages. We have 2 young children and it would be nice for them to have a steady relationship with their grandparents and it would allow us to go out every now and then if they were willing to keep an eye on the kiddos. Plus, it could be financially beneficial to all parties if worked out in advance. As long as there are some ground rules, I would do it.
Does it have to be my in-laws? Can it be my parents?
I guess for all intensive purposes of this question..... yes...because it would benefit my family in the long run. With my in-laws though it would be a rough ride. I'm not "blessed" with the easiest in-laws to get along with let's just say.
My parents....no question. We get along great, they don't over step their boundaries etc. etc. etc.
Good for you for planning ahead and looking to purchase a home. Good for you guys for being disicplined enough to stick to the goal and only 6 short months later accomplising it!!!
I think that there have to be other reasons than just to save money. For us, it was a temporary stay while working in between school semesters when no other housing was available. Yes, it can be difficult, and all parties involved need to make extra sacrifices for it to work, especially when there are small children and the in-laws are in their elderly years.
WAIT, I can answer that from experience. We are. lol That's right, we are currently living with my in-laws, paying off debt, and eventually saving for a down payment on a house. Though we didn't origionally get here soly because of that, and it's been no walk in the park (as I'm sure you've experienced), it's already helped us get almost $7,000 out of debt in one way or another. It's truly been a blessing (and a curse at times) lol I'm sure it will all be worth it when we sign those closing papers on our first house. Congrats on yours.
No, not anymore. I´ve done that for 10 months while we were searching for a house. It took too long to find one and my hubby and I were glad we were away from my parents-in-law. I´ll better save my nerve than save money.
I have made well over the payment required but yet to be paid. I searched and searched for answers and cannot find what I need to know. I need to know when my payment will be in my paypal. I have made over 3,000 dollars...
How long does it take you to adjust to major changes in your life. For example, unemployment, a child moving out, a child getting married, relocation, starting a new job, etc.I'm learning it takes me about 4 weeks...
