is it too late to be contemplating buying a house in your mid 50s?

Here's my thoughts:

Don't know enough about your situation to advise. It really depends on when you plan to retire, and cost of renting vs buying in your chosen area.

If you are going to buy in your 50's, I would suggest that you either pay cash or have it paid off by the time you retire.
