FIND YOUR DREAM HOME OR APARTMENT

No debt is big when retired. Most of the money that once was used as mortgage payment is saved for future home upgrades and repairs. Keeps you from barrowing more.
Anyone looking to buy a home, whether online or in person, should educate themselves because this will likely be the biggest purchases of your life! To avoid becoming a future, foreclosure statistic, set a price that you are comfortable with, not what the bank, broker or agent says you "can qualify for." This means do not buy more house than you can pay for and still pay your other financial obligations (food, utilities, insurance, taxes, etc.). I got an amazon ebook ("stuff I told my kids about how to buy your first house") for my son to get some basic info BEFORE he sees anything with a real estate agent. It is less than 3 dollars and free to borrow for prime members. Well worth it in my opinion.
