House hunting season is upon us, and for many, that means that you are about to make the biggest purchase of your life. With that thought in mind, we thought it would be important to share advice with you all on how to buy a house the right way.

With homeownership being such an important commitment to undertake, it is imperative that you proceed with caution and preparation. This is crucial because if you do not take the proper safeguards in advance, your home will turn into a financial burden instead of a financial blessing.

Jonathan is such an expert on the matter that he wrote a phenomenal new book on this very topic titled "A Tale of Two Houses: Our Journey of Buying a Home the Right Way after Buying One the Wrong Way".
