What to expect when buying first homeMy fiancé and I have been living in an apartment for awhile but have decided it's time for a house. Our lease is up in August 2014. When would be a good time to start looking at realtors/houses? Also, our combined annual income is about 50k. What can we afford? Our credit scores are good.
