Looking back through the content we've created since launching Agent Monday, it dawned on me that we haven't actually written an article that covers the actual buying process. That is, until now!
We've covered many aspects of the buying journey, from negotiating a builders report, to completing your pre-settlement inspection. But we haven't answered the key question of: "What do I do once I find a home I want to buy?"
That all changes this week with our feature article appropriately titled: How to buy a home. We'll look to follow this up next week with the flipside guide: How to sell a home.

Have an epic week!
