1. Consider the Worth of Your Home-Buying Decision
First things first, buying a home is not an easy decision to make. Understand the importance of buying a home and do a tally of your assets and liabilities. If you have more of the latter, you might consider paying those first, before buying a home.
Also, for those who have a job that involves a lot of relocations, buying a home may not be a really good option, unless your family will be staying in there.
