Q: My partner and I were recently married and are beginning to discuss buying our first home in the coming year. What information do we need to know to make this a thoughtful and hopefully enjoyable experience?

A: First, congratulations on your recent marriage and for preparing to take this next exciting step. For many people, buying their first home represents the biggest financial commitment they’ll ever make. Before making such an important decision, you should consider a variety of factors, starting with whether home ownership is right for you. 

Q: My spouse and I believe we need to start to plan for retirement. We’re still “young” from a retirement standpoint (early 50s), but we want to make sure we’re planning ahead. Can you please offer us some thoughts to help us get started?
