Buying A Home: Conclusion

By Amy Fontinelle

Hopefully this tutorial has made the process of buying a home seem a little less intimidating and a lot more manageable. There's no question that it's complicated, time-consuming enough to feel like a second job and often stressful, but millions of people have gone through the exact same process and come out relatively unscathed.

Owning a home can be a significant source of wealth and at least as importantly, a significant source of comfort, stability and happiness. And if, after owning a home for a while, you don't find yourself in the majority of people who love owning a home, you can always sell it and try again with a new place or even go back to renting.

The important thing is to educate yourself before you do it - don't let the mystery factor or the intimidation factor of the home-buying process scare you away from your dream of home ownership.
