Buying your first home can seem like a huge challenge. There’s so much to think about; mortgages, real estate agents, moving, down payments, insurance (you get the picture). If you’re thinking of buying your first home, you likely have plenty of worries and questions about the entire process.
I can remember my experience buying my first home nearly 10 years ago. I didn’t feel like I was in control of the situation, I was just along for the ride. Whenever I met with my real estate agent, lawyer, or mortgage representative at the bank, I felt rushed through the entire process.
Looking back, I’m not sure if I bought the property I really wanted, or if I received the best interest rate on my mortgage. I also didn’t understand the hidden costs of buying a house. I definitely could have used some guidance.
