Remember these pointers from this video on buying a home: start by thinking about your situation.
- Are you ready to buy a home?
- How much can you afford in a monthly mortgage payment?
- How much space do you need?
- What areas of town do you like?
After you answer these questions, make a "To Do" list and start doing casual research. Talk to friends and family, drive through neighborhoods, and look in the "Homes" section of the newspaper, or online.
