My wife and I just purchased a house…it is still settling in. I can’t believe I am taking the plunge into home ownership. This is the largest asset we ever purchased, and it most likely will be the largest one for the remainder of our life. Last week, I tried to give an in depth account of the purchase in an article. Some of our frustrations, how we stumbled on our house, and the bidding/acceptance process. At the end of the article, I left a cliff hanger about some of the parts of being a first time homeowner that I am still struggling with.
