Am I Ready to Buy a Home?

Buying a home is the biggest purchase you will make in a lifetime; this can be exciting but nerve-racking at the same time! How do you know if you’re ready? Below we list a couple of things to consider before jumping into homeownership.

Why you should buy:

  • You want to personalize your living space. Sick of drab white walls in your apartment? Decorate and paint your own place just how you want it – without that creepy landlord telling you what you can and can’t do!
  • You’re ready to establish your roots. You believe it’s time to settle down and have a place to call “home”.
  • You got married and are thinking of starting a family or already have. Having a screaming baby in an apartment building isn’t easy!
  • In need of more space? Buying a home will allow you to have a specific spot for your stuff instead of it piling up in the closet of your apartment.
  • If you have pets, think about how happy they would be roaming the yard. Remember you aren’t the only one trapped in the close quarters of your apartment; your pets need more space too!
