Kevin’s Corner – Homeowning Nitty Gritty?


How do I go about buying a home in the near future?


Dear Human (presumably),

As I am a bird, I cannot give you the most specific advice on this manner. However, from what I have observed from humans, coming to own a home is a lengthy process that not everyone is able to complete. The first thing I would advise you to do is to be careful and safe in managing your money. Houses are expensive, and so having things like a good credit score and enough money in savings will make it so you will more easily be able to get a loan and so that you will not be at too much risk of going into debt. The second piece of advice I have for you is to consider talking with a finances expert so you can get more specific advice in this regard. I hope my meager bird wisdom is enough to satisfy you, and make sure you don’t take too many risks when trying to acquire a home.
