Throughout the entirety of your life, buying (or selling) your first home is one of the most rewarding and consequential investment decisions you will make. You’ll benefit from the financial and other perks of owning your own property. The freedom of living in and owning your own space means you can decorate, upgrade and personalize without permission (CCRs & HOA notwithstanding) or security deposits. Owning a home is a great way to show financial strength when you need it. Essentially it’s a way to get yourself long-term fixed housing payments – a benefit maximized when you opt for a 30-year mortgage over a 15-year option.
In these next few blogs, I’ll be giving a very brief overview of the processes involved in the purchase or sale of your first piece of Skagit Valley real estate. I’ve broken this series up into six parts:

Buyer’s Guide, Part Two: An Overview of Financing
