Welcome Mr. Tex! I agree with MT. You could ask that very same question on different forums, & every woodworker out there will have an insight. My shop started out in an 8’ x 12’ room in our basement. The first three saws I bought were a circular saw, a good hand saw, & managed to find a pre owned RAS. And acquired tools as the need/funds allowed. When I bought my ts, it was on casters for easier mobility. I started out in the same shoes you’re in now. With pine. Pine has “tar” in it that is pretty hard on blades of all kinds. Were I you, I would consider hand planes, save your $$$, & wait til you have more room, or come across better wood. JMO.
