being relatively broke after purchasing a house or property due to the mortgage payments or other related expenses. although your total value and worth in assets is increasing by the mere fact that you are owning a property, your monthly liquid assets are fairly tight.
The mortgage will be twice that of my current rent, I'm going to be so house poor after the closing.
