Though not all of these will apply to everyone, in general they are steps everyone should take to ensure the smoothest possible transition from renter / basement dweller to a homeowner. Let me know what you all think.

  20. i've always had a hell of a time with my credit!
    my dad without my knowledge, took out a credit card in my name, ran it up to 12 grand, and never paid it.
    i called the credit card company and told em, and they said the only way they could help me is if i say my dad stole my identity, and they would charge him with identity theft. well, i'm not getting my dad in trouble, as much as he screwed me over, i can't do that.
    so at age 19, i got a bankruptcy, five years later i'm still payin for it, can't get a loan, can't get a car, anything, sucks...
