I’ll never forget buying my first home. I worked as a mortgage lender at the time, and I’d been saving my money for many years and paying down a few bills. I was ready to buy….or so I thought. Even though I’d helped my clients obtain mortgage financing for a decade, I never really realized how many decisions needed to be made in buying a home. And my stomach was in knots when I wrote the biggest check I’d ever written for my down payment. Looking back multiple decades later, that scary decision was one of the best financial decisions of my life. Having this perspective and remembering what that felt like, means I can fully appreciate this next step in your life as a first time buyer.
