Also, are you planning to buy your home this year? We have some great tips for you to consider.
Inspect before you buy. Buying a house has some similarities to buying a car. Since you may not be an expert yourself, take along an experienced owner or housing construction worker. This person should be able to detect if the house has construction defects (in the structure, the electrical and or the plumbing).
