my husband and i have decided we want to start looking for a new house. we dont like where we live and i finish school in 5 months and we would like to be settled in our new house before the end of this year. the place we live in now was his moms and when she passed, we took over the payments and bills. well now we are not sure of all the steps we need to take to buy a new house. we would like to know all the steps so that when we start the whole process, there wont be something that comes as a surprise to us and cause any delays. please help with any information you can give. thanks in advance.
