Things you need to know or consider when buying a home. 

  Hello. I’m a millennial and I just bought a house. Why? No I don’t have kids and no I’m not dying to be Suzy Homemaker…so why’d I do it?    

There are several reasons people buy houses, but for me, it had to do with two main ingredients to my life.
