Your Future Home hosts Baker Machado and Hope King talk about some of the main things first-time home buyers shouldn't compromise on.
You may fall in love with that charming old house, but if you were originally looking for a turn-key home and the old house needs a lot of work, don't buy it! You may not be ready for the time and money that goes into a fixer-upper.
Additionally, don't compromise on a good school district. Even if you don't have kids. This is a huge selling point when you eventually move and could increase your home's value.
