So you’re looking to purchase your dream home. Well… before you do that, there are a few things you should do to avoid ending up in a house straight out of a horror film. First off, assess what you can currently afford, and look into loans if you don’t have enough money upfront. A wise man once said, “Money can’t buy happiness,” and that’s probably true, but it can surely buy you the home you want. By the same token, don’t take on a larger loan than you can handle – as it’s just as important to stay within a realistic budget.

Also, make sure to inspect the home for signs of infestation. While you may have loved “A Bug’s Life,” it’s not quite so cute when they’re crawling around and turning your home into theirs. You may choose to inspect the place yourself, but a professional home inspector knows what to look for and can be a big help. Furthermore, if you find a home you really love, try visiting it during various times throughout the day. The neighborhood might be calm and quiet in the morning, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a college frat party by night.
