For most people who are interested in purchasing a home, the idea of purchasing their ideal home is not something that is necessarily a reality. Most individuals want a home that they will be satisfied with, but they realize that they will have to purchase something in their budget, in a neighborhood that is located close to their work or their school, or that in some other ways will meet their needs. Most first time home buyers are not necessarily purchasing multi-billion-dollar dream homes.

While you may not be purchasing your dream home when you purchase your first home, this does not mean that you have to settle on something that you will later regret. The most important tip for purchasing a home you will not regret is making sure that the things that are truly important to you in a home will be what you get. What does this mean?

It is important for you to prioritize what you are actually looking for when you look at houses for sale in Naperville. It is great to make a list of your priorities. For example, you may be looking for a home that will give you the most return when you sell it in the future. You may be simply looking for something that you can have the benefit of living in while you are working on making money from it. So you are not necessarily interested in the size, how many bedrooms the home has, or other details. You are concerned about how much money you will make in the end.

When you make your list, make a few different columns. Make a column that includes things that you are not willing to compromise on. For example, you may absolutely want to have a home where your children will be able to play outside or where you will be able to have a garden. Then, have a column where you will include things that you would prefer. Perhaps you would prefer a home that had a large porch or a deck. These are not deal breakers, but they would definitely be nice. And then make a column of things that you would definitely be willing to bend on.

This list will help you remember what is most important as you are searching for houses for sale. Also, share this list with your spouse or the real estate agent who you work with.

We saved slowly for a vacation of a lifetime. We did not have an expensive honeymoon. We just took a week off of work to establish our new home. We worked around the house, but it is all joyful memories. I started putting a little money away here and there to take a vacation that would be like a honeymoon. I was actually saving the money in cash at home. It was not hidden, just put away. My wife found it and advised we should both add to it. We started at Mykonos villas in Greece to take that vacation we started saving for a long time ago.

The experiences you have is a big part of life. We have had to fix cars, remodel the kitchen, pay for doctor visits, file a claim for a tree that fell on our new garden shed and other things. They are just normal things of living life. Continue Reading »

At least in the material ways. I did not know that she had money when I made my moves. She was really good looking and I knew that she had dumped the guy that she had been going out with, that sort of made it better. I could not stand this guy as much as she could not stand him. At any rate I took my time and it came to pass, now I am living for free in her luxury apartments in Colton CA. Normally I would not ever move in with a girl, but in this case the terms were too good to pass up. Continue Reading »

I Am Back Home Now

I spent a couple of weeks sleeping on the couch at my Mom’s place, obviously that was free and I have not yet had time to look for apartments for rent in Mission Viejo CA. It is going to take some time for me to get everything sorted out. Obviously I did not need a car where I was last. My last real assignment was at the air base in Qatar, which obviously is not going to be a place where you need to be driving around. In Europe we have people that are really settled in, they raise their kids there and even produce little league teams that end up in the Little League World Series. At any rate I sold my car before I left the States and I put the money in the bank. Now I have a good bit of money saved up and I am getting ready for school now. Continue Reading »
