What Does it Take to Own a House?

Owning a home is a dream for many people that, with some proper planning, can easily become a reality. There are a few necessary items potential buyers will need in order to become homeowners—namely money, knowledge of the local real estate market (or the services of a licensed real estate agent), and patience. Time is another factor. Unless you find the perfect house right away, budget for a minimum of 2 months to find a house and close the deal. It takes an average of 30 to 45 days for a house to close. After that, you must purchase home owner’s insurance and sign a variety of documents. Then the house is yours.
