Hi. New to this forum and feeling very lucky to have found it - I need help! Background - my partner and I (both mid 30s) are a ways off affording our own home. We always thought we should hold off on buying an IP as this would mean we would forfeit various grants available to us. But I'm starting to think that we might be better to forget the grants and get into the market as investors because presumably, that will bring us closer to being able to buy our own home. I am at home with two very young children and partner works full-time. Question - if owning our own home is anywhere from 2 -10 years away, are we better to enter the market as investors? Thank you in advance.
