Of course, with some of the replies I've seen here, even after I repay my debt, I shouldn't buy ANY house, no matter what the cost. I should just rent forever.

Now I KNOW you are being an idiot.

No one said you shouldn't buy a house. They are just saying that you shouldn't buy too much house. You want to run out and buy a 4 or 5 bedroom house, so that each kid can have their own room and you can have a private office.

And don't give me that "within a year" crap. We all know if the mortgage company would give you a mortgage today, you'd be out finding your dream home.
