Like many entrepreneurs here in Southern California, when starting your business, you put an awful lot of thought into setting up your company's operations and your goals and plans for the company. Once the everyday grind of running the company started, however, your focus may have come to primarily rest on the day-to-day things. You may feel like you don't have the time to deeply examine important questions like:
Purchasing your first home should be an amazing feeling signaling the start to a more stable future where long-term roots and dreams are established. Unfortunately, not every home buyer has this experience, especially when the home consists of serious infrastructural faults not disclosed prior to signing over new ownership.
Do you have to work a second job to afford your home? According to the U.S. Department of Labor, 7.6 million Americans work a second job to make ends meet today. When you bought your home, you probably considered both the pros and cons of the purchase not just on your finances but on your lifestyle too. While you might work a second job to make ends meet, it turns out that owning a home could equate to the same.
