So you’ve come to the realization that you are not best friends with everyone in your building. What made you realize that? Perhaps it was the incessant bass thumping through the night. Or maybe you got back from a major shopping trip, only to find that the nearest parking spot was 2 blocks away. Time to haul 7 bags, 2 blocks over and up 3 flights of stairs. Great. Or was it the time you asked permission to paint the walls purple, and the only response you received was an uncomprehending stare.
No matter what the reason, homeownership is an option that allows you to have seclusion when you need it, to have your own parking spot, to paint the walls whatever color you want, and so much more. Buying a home can be the best decision you’ve ever made, especially in a time when houses in Minneapolis are to be had at a good price, but first, you need to make sure that all the ducks are in a row.
Ask yourself these questions: Are you a financially responsible person, always paying bills on time? Are you handy at fixing things, or have friends or family that are handy? Do you have steady employment that you can reasonably count on to be there for you? If you answer yes to these questions, you have just taken the first step to fulfilling your dream of owning your own Minneapolis home.
