Recently I have been thinking a lot of leaving the renters world and becoming a home owner. During this thought process I have done some minor research looked at property on-line nothing major but enough to confuse me. I worry the whole process once I begin it is going to confuse me into making some mistake that will hurt me. So I have decide to create this thread so people can talk about their experiences and get some insight for myself.
I don't trust bankers or Real estate people so some outside non bias input would be great.
So what was your experience when buying your home? What mistakes did you make? What advice would you give someone who is looking to buy for the first time?
