In my previous post Young and Naive I wrote a bit about our experience in selling our old house to Castletown Shopping World.
There sure is a lot that I don’t know that I wish I did know about buying and selling a house. A lot of what I wish I knew can be read in the following article: Get Rich Slowly » What I Wish I Knew Then About Home Buying. That article gives a pretty good commentary on another article over at Yahoo Finance: What I Wish I Knew Then About Home Buying.
Like many things in life (like having kids, getting married, etc.) stuff like this can sometimes only really be learned after actually going out and doing it yourself. That said, if you can pick up even just a few pointers from the article it could be helpful.
Sometime soon I want to find the time to write a bit about our experience in purchasing our first house as it was a bit of an eye opener into what people will do to sell a house.
