1. You don't have to own your home

There is a fundamental question in whether owning a home actually makes sense for your particular circumstances. Some people will tell you that paying rent is throwing money away, but there are many benefits to renting, particularly if you move around a lot.

2. The advice your uncle gave you is not a law to abide by

As soon as you announce that you're looking to buy property, you can expect friends and family to come out of the woodwork with all their well-intentioned advice. Remember that principles that may have been true in the past don't necessarily continue to be so in the changeable property market.

3. Take the time to sniff out any issues with the property

Smell for mould, and animal-related odours. Knock on walls to see if they sound hollow. Open the dryer and the dishwasher – you never know if pests are living in there. Does the toilet flush properly? Does the heating/air-conditioning work? Is the flue functioning above the fireplace? Is the water pressure okay?

4. Work with experienced professionals

Hire the most thorough, licensed home inspector you can find to pinpoint any issues that could potentially end up becoming costly repairs. To avoid conflict, make sure your lawyer is not also representing the seller.
