“Make sure the house is structurally sound. Make sure the location is to your liking – get to know the neighborhood at night and on weekends so you know sound levels and safety. Don’t buy the most expensive house you can afford. Remember there will be expenses, repairs and improvements.”
Diana Roberts

“BEFORE all of that make sure the person you are living with is the right person for you..live with them first for a year before buying anything together..be sure they will stick around and are financially trustworthy.”
