When we think about the “American Dream” buying a home is certainly a core element. At least that’s what I’ve been told. However, far too often I find people getting tempted into buying a home that’s way too big for their bank account because society says, “you should buy a house you can grow into.” I can tell you first hand that is a dangerous statement. When your home (or your mortgage payment) is bigger than your bank account the risks can far out weight the benefits.

On This Podcast Episode:

  • Let’s discuss the dangerous of buying a house bigger than you need
  • How to define your ideal home
  • What are some factors you should consider to buy the right home for you
  • How can you balance your goals with your mortgage payment
  • Life lessons I learned from the all too real lifestyle creep
  • Why you need to make smart home buying decisions (and how to correct not so smart ones)
