The purchase of your home may be your greatest investment. It can also be an emotional experience. If there is more than one decision-maker involved, a partner, a husband or a wife for example, things might be more complicated as compromises may have to be made. Then , before you know it you may have become utterly attached to a particular home and you’re all set on getting it, no matter what! But wait! Does it make financial sense? Do the numbers support your desires? It’ s dangerous to overextend yourself! You need to analyze your life-style, your cost of living , factor some monies for repairs and home maintenance and so on. Don’t become “house-poor”.
