Any way you could get started house hacking? That’s my favorite strategy to get in.
1) make sure your credit score is on the up and up
2) save a little for a downpayment.
3) look for a cheap/negected/small duplex in a part of town safe enough you would live in
4) make a low offer.
5) buy it fha 3.5÷ down, live in one half with yout buddy.
6) sell it in two years
