    There are many choices to consider when thinking about buying a house.  The following is a list of home features to assist in Finding Your Dream Home. * Home Type: Do you want a detached single-family home, multifamily home, townhouse, or condominium? Do you prefer new construction or a previously owned home? Each has advantages and disadvantages. * Location: Is a view important to you? How about the size of the yard? Is privacy more important than the size of the yard? Is the home on a quiet street or is there a lot of traffic? * Size and Floor Plan: What size home do you want? Consider how you will live in and use the space. For example, do you want four bedrooms because you have three children? Or will you use the extra bedrooms for a guest room and separate office or hobby space...

We thought this was a good article to pass along for new buyers thinking about diving into the business of buying a new home.Common Buyer Fears Whether you are a first time home buyer or someone who is looking to move up or down, getting into the market can be a fearful time. Here are some of the most common buyer fears: Do I have enough money to buy a home? To first step to finding out how much home you can truly afford is to get pre-qualified for a mortgage. Also, take a step back and look at your finances. Ideally, you should have around 20 percent of the purchase price to put down. You should also have less than a 36 percent debt to income ratio. Be sure to include all of your monthly obligations in that equation, including student loans, child support payments, alimony, car payment...
