yeah we are saving for a house but with a baby on the way it wont happen soon enough . and we have worked out a budget that will allow us to rent and save , so it will only be a 12 or 24 month thing , just so we have our own space and can start learning what it is like with a family . it is not the ideal option but we will be happy to rent and have a family there . never wanted to rent but have lil choice at the moment and i dont want to 100% finance a house .
any one else out there with help

maybe look into a not so great an area thats alot cheaper, but not like bagdad? if you get my gist, just put up with something small and cheap for a year to get maximum savings?

also no chance in paying small rent and moving back home with your parents or parents in-law?

The only advice I can give, is make sure the landlord knows about the baby on the way. I missed out on countless houses to the 'young family', not totally sure why, just assuming it was partly because i had no references (first time renting) and the young family is guaranteed centreline money, which in a landlords eyes would show big dollar signs.
