Chapter 2

Getting Your Financial House in Order

In This Chapter

Assessing your budget and spending

Determining your savings requirements to achieve your goals

Protecting yourself and your assets with insurance

Remembering what’s most important in life

When you’re shopping for a home, you’re the person best suited to look out for your overall interests. The people involved in typical real estate deals (such as real estate agents, bankers, loan brokers, and the like) are there to get their jobs done. It’s not within their realm of responsibility to worry about how the real estate purchase fits with the rest of your personal finances and how best to arrange your finances before and after purchasing a home. This chapter explains how you can address these important issues.
