Anxiety about buying first home & moving out of apartment?
Has anyone else felt really confused when thinking of buying home? I’m not so concerned about the finances, etc., I’m worried about the change. A part of me doesn’t want to do it but I’ve lived in my apartment forever (with really cheap rent) and I’m really tired of it and my neighbors and my neighborhood. BUT, it’s scary to think of moving to new town (I can afford to buy in the city I live) and I have no idea what it’s like to own a home and what if I don’t like the neighborhood or the house for that matter after I buy it?? I’d appreciate any advice or encouragement anyone can give me.
I have to worry about the finances but for some reason that’s not freaking me out as much as the fear of making a change. Once I deal with that then I can start looking at if I can afford it.
Thanks to everyone for reminding me of the benefits of owning your own home! It’s very, very encouraging!
