Buying your own home can be one of the most expensive, if not the most expensive, purchases you will ever make. Whether you are buying for the first time or moving to a new home, the whole process can be both thrilling and stressful, in equal parts.
Selling a home can, likewise, for many of us, be a highly stressful life event, with huge financial consequences.
You may, of course, be both buying a new home and selling your old home at the same time. Double the stress!
