Let’s be clear about something -- buying a house isn’t for the faint of heart.
Yes, it’s exciting but nerve-wracking at the same time. For most people, it will be the biggest purchase of their lives. It goes without saying, you want to make sure you’re making a solid investment, regardless of how long you’re planning on staying in the home.
And once you close, you’re suddenly committed to this huge expenditure. Before you sign those closing papers, better yet, before you even start your search, it’s critical to consider some issues that will help solidify your intent to buy a home that you'll truly love for a long time.
