Should we seek out a financial advisor before buying a home...I am fairly good with managing our family budget and working towards goals, etc. However, we are seriously considering purchasing a town home or SFH and I have my reservations. We have serious debt amounts that can in no way can get paid off rapidly, we have paid off all our cc debt though which is great.Renting is fairly expensive in our area, the min. possible would be around 1100 a month, but tends to be in the 1300-1400 range. We are now trying to decide if and when we should buy, and how much mortgage is too much of a mortgage. We have a gift for a downpayment, and make fairly good yearly salaries, but again I am concerned about the long-term costs of home ownership--would it be wise to seek out a financial advisor to discuss our financial plans? Will they simply tell us to save more money and pay off debt? How can they help in the process?
