    Beautiful, right? It's brand new, in an incredible neighborhood a couple miles from a bustling city.

    I have no magical success story here. No bullshit.

    I'm 26. My wife and I were relatively frugal over the past four years and saved up a lot of money thanks to additional income streams besides my office day job (local SEO and online reputation management mainly allowed my income to double).

    For this reason, we were able to afford to put down enough of a down payment to keep our monthly payments within our budget.

    It took me several years of shit work and marketing failures to get to the point where I was raking in a solid income. Moral of the story? Just give it time and don't give up.

    The end.

    Great job, and nice honesty. I'm happy to see people telling the truth on here rather than the "fake it till you make it" crowds. Hard work. No way around it.

    Congratulations! This is what I'm trying to do. How was the bank showing self employed income? I heard they can be more difficult. My wife works a 9-5 and I will be self employed for about a year and a half.

    Lots of paperwork. I had to provide the past three years of tax returns, quarterly P&L statements for the past six quarters, and an explanation of declining income as 2016's "expenses" were higher than 2015's, leading to a minuscule decline in self-employment income in 2016 compared to 2015.

    Good luck to you.
