Okay, clearly one activity shouldn’t make up your mind for you, but it is useful to get a feeling for your current situation.

In that case, it can help to talk to other people who have gone through the process or who may be able to offer advice.

To help you make sense of all the you have learned read the first chapter of the story about Parker and Lou, a couple who are trying to decide if buying a home is right for them. Then, if you want, take a look at the experience of Nijah, a young single woman who is also thinking about buying her own home.
