In this post I will not ask you to not have a house of your own. This post will simply state a few expense that you will be incurring when you are a home owner, probably unknowingly, over your house. Just be aware of them and see if you can somehow put a plug in the hole.
After getting the money to finally purchase a house for yourself, the best advice you will give yourself and the best advice you will get from family and friends will be to buy the absolute best house that your money can buy. Following this advice, you look for the best location to buy your house; some of the things you look into include the neighborhood and all it has to offer in addition to the views you will get among other amenities.
