Take Charge When Buying a Home.

Before you begin the home buying process, resolve to act promptly when you do find the right house. Every REALTORŪ has stories to tell about a couple who looked far and wide for their dream home, finally found it, and then said, "We always promised my Dad we'd sleep on it, so we'll make an offer tomorrow." Many times the story had a sad ending - someone else came in that evening with an offer that was accepted. If you approach the home buying process intelligently and with confidence, you are much more likely to buy a house you'll be proud to call home.
