So my parents want to buy a home and I would be living there and helping to pay the mortgage and help fix up the place. My parents are getting close to retirement age and they currently rent. I moved back in with my parents last year because I had just gotten a new job closer to home. I'm 27 and work full-time and I have my own car. My job is literally in the town that we would be moving too and my current commute is less than 10 minutes.
I'm very independent, I just happen to live with my parents. I am close to my family, and I enjoy the area where I live. My parents would like to buy a home so they have something to leave me and my sister when they pass on.
I have lived outside of my parents home for 6 years. I went to college, and moved to a city. I liked living there, it's just hard to find something that is decent and still allows me to save for a down payment. I don't currently have the money to buy a home myself. I would be actively saving for my own house someday. But I would also be paying rent and helping fix up the house.
What do you guys think? Would you date a girl like this or would that be too much of a turn off?

I would think she is smart since she found a way to save money for her future.
Also, what's the point of people buying a house until they find someone (a mate/spouse) that they want to live with. Otherwise if both people were already buying a house and wanted to live together, they would have to sell the house one of them is already buying, probably losing many thousands in the process since the 30 years of interest would have already been figured into what they owe on it. If you know how mortgages work, you know what I'm talking about.1
