Dear readers, it's time for us to crowd-source -- we're putting together a smashing week full of features for first-time buyers, and we want to hear from you about your experience.
Are you in the process of buying a home? Did you just buy one? Have you tried to buy one and become very discouraged? We want your story. Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what happened to you. (Consider it catharsis, if you must!)
Furthermore, we want tips for first-time buyers. Benevolent brokers, tell us what you think: how can a first-timer act like a veteran to make sure they're getting the best deal? What should first-time buyers know? What's a good tip for them that might end up being a lifesaver? You're sure to rack up some karma for sharing your tricks, so send them our way too.
