My boyfriend & I have been dating for a year but we’ve been friends for over 10 years. He’s wonderful, and I know we are meant to be together. Lately he’s been talking more and more about marriage and a family and also about moving in together.
He’s also been trying to convince me to sell my home, then we move into the new house and keep his two condos. He lives in one condo and rents the other one. He would pay me rent when he moves in and use the money from the condos to help pay down the mortgage. This way I can buy us a newer, bigger home to live in right now. I would rather stay in my current home and save up for a house together and make the purchase together. Also with house prices here in Kitchener/Waterloo being crazy of late, I don’t know this is the best financial decision.
I told him that we can talk about it down the road when we are married, but he’s insisting that we should do it now and doesn’t want to sell either of his condos to come up with a down payment. Do I sell or stand my ground? Sell or not to sell in Kitchener
