10 Commandments of Home Buying

September 10th, 2018

We just love this post from Matthew Amster-Burton of Mint.com.  Whether you're in the process of buying a home or you're already a homeowner, you'll want to read the 10 Commandments of Home Buying. 

We're especially crazy about #9 - "Be Prepared to Settle Down."  Many of our clients realize that they could pay less with a monthly mortgage payment, than they would if renting.  They fail to consider, though, that if they move only a couple years after their purchase, they won't have saved enough to counterbalance the expense of buying and selling! 

What rules or guidelines do you follow when it comes to homeownership?  Leave your tips in the comments below!  And to read Amster-Burton's other commandments, click here.
