What are some tips on buying a house?
Wife and I have been on the fence on making the dive. I plan on seeing a broker soon to discuss some possibilities, but I was wondering if anybody had some current tips given the market situation. Everything I google seems to be dated information like, "You MUST have 20% upfront." Is this true anymore?
-How much of a downpayment?
-Any general rules on what you can afford given X income?
This would be our first house for some further info. Thanks!
