Cooler temperatures and pretty soon falling leaves serve as a reminder that the fall season is fast approaching. As the seasons change, so do our activities and home needs. Even though summer is not quite over yet, it’s a good time to do some seasonal maintenance to keep your home running smoothly.

It’s important to assess whether you will be able to handle a specific monthly payment, and you don’t want to waste time viewing homes that you can’t afford.
4) What are your desires and needs? ...
