When looking to buy a home there are many things to consider besides just the size of a home. Home amenities, school district and desirable neighborhoods also play a big part in your decision.



What  many people may not realize this that there is a cost for waiting to purchase a home. Many people believe that renting little longer will not only allow you time to find that perfect home but will also save you money. Let's take a look at the numbers and see that this is not always the case.
