Making it easier for the next guy

VictoriaB

The desire to own a home is somewhat ingrained in our culture.  Like going to school and getting married, it's one of those milestones or rights of passage many feel the need to secure.

If you could offer up one tip or piece of advice that you learned while buying a home what would it be? 

What things can you do to make buying a home easier?

Advice? IF you plan on buying a fixer upper....make certain you and your partner are on the same page when it comes to the amount of work, time and $$$ you plan on putting into the home. It is a great opportunity to customize your home to reflect your personality, and not someone elses.
