The question of my year: How to BUY a home

This topic has been on my mind a lot the past year!! Real estate is tough in our area right now and after we sold the Stanley 90's Reno we had several experiences trying to buy our next place. I now have experience buying 3 homes and unfortunately, almost buying several.

This week on the Your Home Story podcast Ashley and I are talking about our experiences buying homes, and what we've learned along the way.

(Remember we also talked about BUYing a home in episode 16!)

Some specifics for what we talked about this week:
  1. My electrical issues in my new (old) house. 
  2. Ashley’s motivation and progress in her sunroom.
  3. The first-time homebuyer class I took in 2011
  4. Redfin home search tool
  5. Risk factors for radon (and here's a good resource from a Realtor on risks and opportunities if radon comes up while you're buying)
  6. Refinancing through preferred partners on Zillow and Realtor.com
  7. Mortgage calculators

Here's our first home...
