In this episode, Michael fields my laundry list of questions all about mortgages and what to know for first-time buyers, how to set a budget to buy a property, and explains what all that mortgage jargon means in real terms. This episode is great for people who are thinking of getting into the real estate market and buying a home for the first time or already seasoned homeowners since I even learned some incredibly useful, new things!
