is it possible to buy a house at 22 making 16/h?

So I’ve been trying to tell my Brother in Law/BIL that sometimes it’s just impossible for people to get by. For example he said people choose to be homeless and that there’s always an option. my sister and my BIL always say things like “you’re never stuck at a job” and all that. they’re more than double my age and my mom bought a house in her early 20s for $29,000, and she’s 66 now, and the house is now worth $151,000. I told my BIL that and he said “my buddy who bought a house in his 20s did it” and he is in his mid-late thirties now.

My BIL told me that “if I work full time at $16/h I can get a house in six months as long as i have $3000”. The only thing good about my situation is that I have absolutely no debt. But he always says stuff like “I know x person who bought a house”, and he even said he knew a person who bought a $250,000 house and that this person was my age.

Maybe because I’ve been indoctrinated by pessimistic reddit subs but I’ve always thought it’s been basically near impossible to own a house with the rising costs of everything, inflation, and stagnant wages. we live in Louisiana
