What Not To Do When Buying A House

Buying a new home is exciting but there are some things you should be aware of. In this article, we will cover WHAT NOT TO DO WHEN BUYING A HOUSE! Purchasing a home can bring on a lot of emotions but one emotion can get you into hot water. It's called emotional buying! Purchase decisions are impacted by rational as well as emotional motives. Whether a decision is made based on emotional, or rational factors, is highly individual and depends on the person deciding, the product, and other circumstances.

In this short video, I speak with Ken Harlow from On Q Financial in Phoenix, Arizona. He gives you a great insight on what not to do when buying a house.
