I've been living in my grandparents' house for most of my life, I've moved around but always came back because it was cheaper for me to stay here. I have a family of my own and I really want to be able to have a place to call ours, instead of being somewhat of a burden and inconvenience to the other members of the household. However the cost of living is high and my salary is small, I have a student loan that I'm still paying and zero savings. So getting the financing for a mortgage is near to impossible to say the least. So here I am asking for assistance in at least clearing my loan so that I can have a clean slate to get financing to either buy a home or acquire property to build one. I have three more years on my loan left but, without revealing family drama, I'm at a point where I need to leave by the end of this year. Asking for help is not something that comes easy to me and as I type this I wonder if I should even be asking. I know there are others that are worse off than I am but I feel I'm at my wit's end and I need help.
