Buying a home, whether your first or your fifth, is a significant commitment - of not only your finances, but also your time and energy.  When buying a home, many people begin the process by hiring a realtor, rather an contacting their financial advisor or someone who can help walk them through the true financial impact of owning a home, both in terms of current as well as future financial needs.  There's considerably more to owning a home than simply qualifying for a mortgage.
