You guys, Joe and I have officially been home owners for a year now, but trust me- it wasn’t an easy ride getting to this point. So today my friend Mila’s sharing some really good info about buying and owning a home, stuff that will surely help you if you’re flirting with the idea of buying your first place. So here it is! Enjoy!
In my last post, I mentioned that my next life goal is to buy a house. That was no lie; I’ve got serious house fever, and I spend way too much time looking at houses online that I can’t afford. I dream about a three bedroom, two bath place with wood floors, a tricked out kitchen, and a huge back yard for all of the dogs I want. At this point in my life, though, I’m not financially ready, but that doesn’t mean I can’t start preparing myself for becoming a homeowner.
There’s a lot to know about buying and owning a home. There’s everything you have to do before you buy a home; financing, saving, searching and moving, and then there’s everything you need to know about owning a home, like maintenance and safety. It’s a huge thing to be a homeowner, so you really have to know your stuff.
