The Intangibles

It's no wonder that psychologists rank buying a home high on the list of stress-producing events. Not only is it the biggest purchase most people make in a lifetime, but also it forces a wholesale examination of goals, commitments and lifestyle. It's an emotional as well as a financial investment.

People buy homes for lots of different reasons. Before you dive into the search for a home, examine your motives, clarify your wants and needs, and focus your investigation.

With so much at stake, don't rush into the market without thoughtful preparation. If you join the ranks of buyers charging about for answers without knowing the right questions, you may—by luck—end up with a house you can live with. Then again, you may spend weeks, even months, looking at houses only to end up feeling thwarted and confused.
