  1.  One way that you can buy big without breaking the bank is by going in together with a family member to purchase a home.   You may not like the idea of having someone living with you but if you can afford to buy a large enough house together you might not even be bothered by them as much as you think you will.  
  2. Another way to buy big without breaking the bank is by buying an older home.  Older
