I have $0 saved for a down payment. I want to buy a home in five years. What should I do? Go:

Title says it all, but I'm looking for a five year plan. How can I save enough for a down payment? And what other things can I do, over these next five years, to prepare me (credit score improvement, etc.)? 

 

Give it to me straight Team. 

 

(oh, and some related details: credit score sits at 760, I have literally no debt at the moment, I can't imagine buying a $1M home so let's assume the down payment will be south of $100K, I'm 32 years old, and I've got a grad degree)
