I am a 42 year old single man with 0 dependents and no mortgage despite having a very good salary I have no savings . I would like advice on how to better take care of my finances and whether I should buy a house . Im in my current role for the past 13 years but Im unsure whether to buy a house as I dont think I want to stay in Waterford. Ive pretty much resigned myself to ever wanting kids or getting married so I only have myself to look after . I am currently doing a course in the hope of getting contract roles in the field im in to make more money . Im just wandering if I should try and buy a house anyway as an investment since i am currently in full time employment.
