My husband and I are building a house. We made a deal after returning from our honeymoon.
I make up a quarter of what I make (in the nonprofit sector), and I have lived frugally in the hope of one day owning a home.
My husband has his own house, so he is bringing equity from the sale of this house to buy our new house.
I have cash assets, and we agreed to bring 25% of the cost of the new home to the table.
In addition, he wants me to sell my share of my new home ($ 130,000) to his house, and then he pays me back.
