I wish someone would’ve sat me down and really explained the whole process to me. Instead, I had to learn by trial and error (which is never fun).
There were moments when I broke down, cried myself to sleep, drank one too many glasses of wine and wished the house buying adventure had never started.
I’m not joking. I don’t think I’ve ever cried as much. It’s confusing. Almost on purpose, I think. So many papers to sign. So much money coming out of your wallet.
I learned a lot from that house, as you will from your first house. They say it builds character. I say it builds stress lines and heartburn.
No, seriously, buying a house is an awesome process, you’ve just got to know a few things ahead of time.
In this podcast, I walk you through the 9 things I wish I had known before I bought my first house.
Check it out, and then let me know what lessons you’ve learned in buying your first home (or any questions you have if you’re a first-time home buyer.)
