In terms of life events, buying and owning a home is up there. Graduation, marriage, babies, homeownership. The American Dream. Homeownership is not just a roof over your head! It represents shelter, stability, wealth, and pride!
When you think about buying a home, many questions will come to mind.
Do I really need to buy a home?
Is my income going to grow?
Will I stay in a home long enough to benefit from the purchase?
Have I got enough money saved?
Am I ready for the responsibility?
Buying a home may be the American dream, but it’s also a monumental task: You have to clean up your credit, apply for a mortgage, scrape together a down payment, and then move all your worldly possessions in after you close on the deal.
