A Quick Reference Guide for First-Time Home Buyers

I recently received a series of very excited reader questions about buying a house.  One of my friends and her husband decided that it was time for them to seriously search for a home to own.

If you’re a regular reader, you know that Ben and I went through the same process a few months ago, so I have several posts that will help with the anxiety of making such a big purchase for the first time.

I put together a quick reference guide so first-time home buyers can find all of the info they need in one place. Here is what you need to know:

Those are the fundamentals. I have plenty of more posts regarding home owning so make sure to check out those posts as well in the archive. (Also tagged “real estate”.)
