While the internet offers plenty of tools to help you figure out that magic price point, the best thing to do is actually look at your own budget. Our Friends with Tax Benefits offer their tips from their own home hunting and home-planning experiences. From Daniel’s disbelief at what the lenders were saying, to Kat’s experience with a huge repair in her first month in her new home, and Lauren’s own experience weighing the pros and cons of homeownership based on where she’s living, there’s plenty to talk about and think about in today’s episode. Check out all of this and more on today’s episode! If you have a tax question for our resident tax expert, Kat, submit your question in the comments, and it could be answered in a future Friends with Tax Benefits episode!
