The papers are signed, the keys are in your hand, and you’re finally getting ready to move into your first home! While this is a very exciting time, it can also be stressful as you’re taking on a lot more responsibilities as a homeowner than you did as a renter.

Upside: You can plant a flower or vegetable garden and create your own landscaping!
Downside: Mortgages are expensive.

Upside: You can buy a new dishwasher to replace the old one that didn’t work!
Downside: Taxes are more expensive.
