"Buy for today with an eye on selling tomorrow."
The home you buy will affect you personally and financially for quite a while. Make sure it's a home you'll still want to own several years down the road.
Will you be starting or expanding your family? Buy a home with extra space now. Is your income likely to increase over the next several years? Stretching your budget early may make sense if you'll be happy in the home longer. Are there any plans for major changes in the area? New roads, housing or shopping developments, and expanded commercial activity could affect your home's value--positively or negatively. In short, it pays to look ahead before you leap into your next home.
