This may sound like a really easy question to some, but it is one I am having a hard time with.
My hubby and I have always rented, one thing I like about renting is that we don't have to maintain the property
which to me just sounds time consuming. However, my hubby is very handy and could surely handle such things.
My other huge concern about owning is that most of our friends are home owners but they seem to always be complaining about mortgages and not having money to pay for other things, sometimes the utilities since none are included and sometimes not being able to go on vacations and such, which we really enjoy doing.
Honestly, we are paying down debt right down, thankfully we don't have much even between us, but we weren't taught anything about finances or getting a home so we don't really know where to start. Every time I look at home prices they seem crazy to me lol Just because I am wondering how much you have to pay upfront and what if we wanted to relocated?
anyway, I would just appreciate any input, advice, steps towards home owning if it is a good choice, etc. Thanks!
