JW's Financial Coaching Podcast Lesson #94-Three things to do before considering purchasing a home
The whole home buying process can be stressful. Because of that, I'm releasing a book this spring which details our experience in buying a home. Not only do we share our story but we also give tips and advice on what to expect as well as break down some of the hidden costs of buying a home.
On today's lesson we are going to discuss the three things to consider before purchasing a home. They are the following:
Now granted, doing all three of these things might slow down our ability to purchase a home. In fact it could slow down the process significantly. But you know what? I'm still doing it. If you do all of the above three things you will probably be better prepared than 99% of other home buyers and it will allow you not to rush into the home buying process.
Speaking of the home buying process, I've finally completed my book on our family's story of buying a home in 2013. It is scheduled to be released later this spring and on today's lesson I'm excited to announce that the name of the book is, "A Tale of Two Houses: Our journey of buying a home the right way after buying one the wrong way." Thanks to all of you who gave your thoughts on the book title. Also stayed tuned in the next few weeks as I get prepared to accept applications to become a member of my book launch team for those of you who are interested.
Also on today's lesson I give a quick review of Pat Flynn's new book Will it Fly.
I've had a chance to read an advanced copy and love the book. If you
are looking to or are even remotely thinking of starting a business of
any size, please check this book out first. Pat's book will challenge
you but also force you to look at some things before you put all the time, effort, and money in that you need to launch a successful business. You can order his book on Amazon.com
