I'm only 26yrs old. I wasn't sure what the best way to save for a home is. My original thoughts where that all of my investments are for retiring. Should I invest any differently for saving for a home? Or should I just make some stock withdraws for the home after I accumulate some money, so I can pay for the down payment? It's kind of discouraging to have to withdraw some of my money that is set aside for retirement, since I've seen so many charts illustrating the power of time and compounding interest. I know I should look at buying a home an investment, but wasn't sure if there is a specific way to keep on investing for retirement and have a separate account for saving specifically for my first home.

Any advice would be appreciated.
