Great Buyer Resources

Updated: Jan 13


Buying a home today is so much different than it was when my parents bought their homes, or even when I bought my first home in the 1980's! The 1980's weren't that long ago, yet it seems like an eternity because so much has changed! And on the internet, you will find so much information that it can sometimes be hard to know what is true and what is false, or even why you have to do things a certain way, or what you should watch out for! Even if you have bought a home before, you may find that the process has really changed a lot.


So to help guide you through the home buying process, I have compiled some resources that should help you maneuver through the home buying process and answer many questions you may have!
