My dream is to buy a (starter) home of my own. I'm not thinking about a few months from now but maybe 5-6 years later. Does anyone know of someone who's single, a nurse and bought their own house/condo/townhome after 5-6 years since starting nursing? I want to save up at least 15-20 precent downpayment as I don't want to struggle with paying off the mortgage. I'm from the Greater Toronto Area. I know the GTA is expensive but I'm interested in any metropolitan city in Canada. I just want to know if it's doable to buy a home by myself with a nurse's salary.
