The folks at Apartment Therapy just shared a really useful quiz about being ready to buy a home that focused on the practical nuts-and-bolts stuff — mortgages, closing costs, budgets and other financial concerns. If you’ve been thinking about buying a home, it’s well worth taking a look at, to get a sense of how the numbers might line up for you.

So how'd it turn out? Are you feeling ready to make a move? If you're set to hunt for that perfect home, I'd love to help — drop me a line!
