A major concern with a potential new home is if the property in which they're interested is going to appreciate or depreciate in value over the course of the years. Here are some tips on the topic.
Keep an open mind in regard to what you want. You probably won't be able to get everything on your want list, but you can afford another one. If you can't find a home in the area you want, look for it in an adequate area or find an adequate house in a perfect area.

Some rentals require you to clean the garden or to pay someone to do it. Other places still will offer this service in the rent every month.
