Determine Your Goals
So you’re thinking about buying a home - congrats! The first step now is to ask yourself, “What do I want in a home? Do I need/want a newer home, larger home, closer location, smaller mortgage, or a better school?" Spending time prioritizing your goals will help you better plan your home search and avoid falling in love with a beautiful kitchen or back yard that’s too far from work or costs more than you can afford. In the end, you’ll be better served and ultimately find the home you really love.
