I got a new job and will be moving this summer! I'm beginning the search for a home, but I'm trying to decide what way to go...rent or buy. The area I'm moving to is very expensive, especially for rental property, which makes me feel that buying would be a better choice. This is an area I intend to stay in long term and I'd really like to only make one move. The biggest hang up is that I have no money for a down payment on a house. I have very little debt (just school loans) which works in my favor. Where do I start and what should I do? I know the basic...contact my bank to see if I can qualify and find a realtor...but I'm not good with all this stuff!
