Congratulations!  You have taken the first step to finding your home.

Welcome to the companion website for the Finding Home book!

Buying a home is a big step.  I am here to help you get started and work all the way through the process.

Buying a home involves preparation (research, savings, and soul searching), tools (websites, data, forms, checklists, and people) and processes (walk-throughs, negotiations, mortgage loan approval, and closing the deal) that will lead you to a home that meets your needs and budget. The Finding Home book will help you navigate the home-buying maze by giving you guidance, answering questions, and helping you feel confident before you take your first steps.

In the book, you will find insights and tips for first time home buyers and seasoned investors alike.  It is a guide that you can reference any time questions arise, and it incorporates new attitudes, technologies, laws, demographic trends, environmental concerns, and economic realities.  Recognizing that changes in these areas are nonstop, I have created this companion website that includes updates, answers to frequently asked questions, an extensive glossary, recommended websites, calculators, downloadable forms, and more.

From the Downloads page of this site, you can download templates for the forms included in this book and customize them for your needs. You can add in your dreams, needs and wants, desired locations, income, budget, family size and everything else related to your home search.  Calculators, tracking forms, budget tools, sample documents, and a host of other items are at your disposal.

With that said, let us begin. Together we are going to take the right steps to help you to successfully acquire your first, or next, home.

Here’s to your home buying success!
