Is It Right For Her?

Hi guys, hope you all had a great weekend.

A friend of mine seeks my opinion on this.

She's planning to move into her own property on her 30th Birthday which is very soon. She said to me, "the house is the birthday gift am giving herself". The thing here is, she's single and would be living in the house alone. Her mum thinks it's not right for her making that move because of the society we are in and couple with the fact that she's still single and might chase potential suitors away. Well, i think she deserves to be happy and if moving into her property on her birthday is what she really wants then why not! I won't want to give my advice if it's not the best for her so, i decided to turn to you guys again for your advices. Thanks y'all.

You are right to an extent. You know, i thought of the same thing. Living alone in a 3 bedroom flat doesn't make much sense. I guess she wasn't thinking right @ the time she rented the apartment. Secondly, I suggested lenting the place out too but, she said since her office is not that far to the said property why let it out.

I think I'll go with her mum on this.

Firstly, you say she currently lives in a 3-bedroom flat.

Isn't that too much of an extravagance, considering she lives alone?

Methinks she should rent something smaller, maybe a 2 or even 1 bedroom flat which will cost less money.

It's commendable that she already has her own property at 30.

She can actually decide to rent that out and start getting returns on her investment.

(I'm assuming it will be of a higher value than whatever she herself decides to rent)

If she's still single at 35, then she can decide to move in. lol

Moving into ur own aprtment usually needs careful consideration and factoring many things in. As far as i am concerned, the mum's position is valid, but is not the ultimate position, wat if the lady is still single in the next 5 yrs, she shuld keep stayin in a rented apartment and keep paying the landlord, increase in rent notwithstanding?

If moving into her own aprtment is wat she wants, she should go ahead, but get adequate security around her. Her major concern should be how far away from work and everything else her nu place is, if all of that is taken in consideration, she can move into her husband's house/aprtment when she gets to tht point, right now, she shuld live to enjoy the fruits of her labor and vision

A 30year-old-lady is old enough to live alone pending the arrival of her destined husband.

Actually, she currently lives alone in a rented 3 bedroom flat, her landlord recently increased her rent by 40% and she said she'd rather move into her own property than pay such ridiculous amout of money.
