Join Plancorp Senior Wealth Manager, Sara Gelsheimer, as she goes through the 6 misconceptions and considerations to keep in mind when contemplating a home purchase.

  • Is a home a good investment?
  • Do you itemize your tax deductions?
  • On-going costs of home ownership
  • How long do you intend to stay in the home before re-selling?
  • Do you have an emergency fund to cover unexpected additional costs?
  • Are you ready for maintenance and responsibility?
