"[In a home] You're making an investment in what could be the most important asset you'll ever have. The right moment is when you know where you're going to live for a while, when you find the home that fits your family, and when it's at level that fits in with your income and ability to make a down payment and then I would get a very long mortgage... 30-year mortgage and the rate will be fabulous, and there is no sense waiting if those conditions exist."
