So You Are Buying Your First Home

So You Are Buying Your First Home

Buying a home is huge, and there’s not exactly a test run you can get comfortable with before you put a down payment on your first. What there is, though, is people who have done this before, multiple times, at The Motley Fool, who are here on this re-aired episode of Industry Focus to teach you the ropes. Why bother springing for a 20% down payment? What’s the deal with private mortgage insurance? What do schools matter if you don’t have any kids? How do you know how much to pay a contractor? Do you need a lawyer? How much should you budget for upkeep? What rules vary by state? Tune in to learn more!

To catch full episodes of all The Motley Fool’s free podcasts, check out our podcast center. A full transcript follows the video.
