Things to avoid before purchasing your home:
Spur-of-the-moment impulse overriding sound judgment. Take your time and tour the house at least twice at different times of the day. Drive around and explore the area and find out if the neighborhood as well as the house suit’s your needs. Make sure that your family is in agreement.
Stick to your criteria and don’t buy a house just because it’s a bargain. You might end up with something you didn’t bargain for, a less than ideal housing situation!
