I bought a condo when I was 30 and sold it a few years later.
I didn't get married until I was 42 and my wife and I finally moved to a different part of the state 4 years later. We bought 30 beautiful acres of bare land in a rural area and moved into our very first home when I was 48. We been here now for over 19 years and absolutely love it.10
First off, congratulations!
I was actually really hesitant to buy a house at first because I don't know the first thing about fixing anything. We rented for a while, but I mostly just focused on getting my credit score over 800 and then bought the house we are in now which has now double in equity, back in my mid 30s.10
I was about 15 years old, and I bought 1/3 of a house. It was a rental property that my dad and brother arranged. I never even saw the house until years later when we had to do an eviction. People think that landlords are rich, but don't believe that for a second.4

About 3 years ago, a 50's Ranch. Not a mansion but big enough for me. Plus it's got a pool.10
I was 31. I loved my house but not my husband (he was high on pot morning, noon, and night). He was a chemicalized husband. We got divorced and he kept the house - even though I worked to help pay for it for 4 years.0
I was 24 when I bought my 1st real estate property. It's not a house. It's the small multi-unit apartment building I used to rent in when I was in college.10
My wife and I have not yet bought a house. We are saving though.10
24. Just a small condo for myself. It's a savings account you sleep in.10
Congratulations :). I bought mine 2 years ago. Probably the best thing I've done in my life so far honestly.10
i was forty... i paid cash for it. most people answering this won't have actually bought a house but just signed up to a lifetime of debt. its only 'bought' when its paid for0
I have no desire to be a home owner. My husband does tho and we are saving for a home/land so most likely when he retires we build a home.3
My ex wife and I bought ours when she was 25 and I was 26. Your doing really well at 24.10
Don't know if I'll ever buy one. Not on my list and I still have no clue which city I want to settle down in yet.4

I dont want to buy a house unless i built it. So hopefully anywhere between age 30-350
I was 26 and writing that check caused me to go into labor. True story!0
30. Should buy a condo ASAP instead of giving cash away renting.10
24. Still paying it as I'm only 26 this December. Figured if I'm going to be single I might as well get it taken care of now.0
Flipped a couple in my 20s. 30ish when I bought the one I live in.0
I was 18, I bought a half-share with my mother for cash.0
32 & still renting smh.22
I was 22 but it was a small and cheaper place, that I also got with "assistance"
a better, bigger place that could be considered apt for a family, I got it around age 26
if we're talking about a "dream house" at a "dream location" and all that, I've got nothing like that yet, that will have to wait till later, maybe when I am married and planning for a family, and then... it would have to be a decision and purchase from two people involved, like you and your husband
