Hi,
Has anybody any thoughts on using a Roth IRA just to save for a first house? Also what qualifies as a first house? I just got married, my wife already owns a house, if we sell it and I buy a house does that qualify? I'm thinking of putting the max ($2000?) a year in a Roth IRA and then taking it our in five years for a downpayment on a house. Or should I just invest my money in another fashion, UV4 for instance?

Thanks,
JDWebster
