How can we afford all this?

We often get asked how we can afford a 400sqm house so close to the beach, in our late 20s/mid 30s. Most of the times it annoys us and we cannot be bothered explaining/justifying ourselves.

So here is how/why:

While most guys MrB's age were smoking, using drugs, drinking heavily and enjoying holidays to places like Thailand, he was saving for a deposit to buy a house. A perfect block of land in the perfect location popped up so he bought it. He was in his mid 20s.

While living with his parents, he was able to make extra repayments and therefore halve the term of his loan.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without his lovely parents who brought him up the way they did, which I am extremely thankful for.
