Home Buying Pitfalls for Unmarried Couples

Collier Swecker video blogs about a few issues that unmarried couples face when buying a home together. There are a few legal and economic issues that couples must look at before putting earnest money on their new home. When unmarried couples buy a home together they need to make sure that both of them are named on the mortgage and ensure that they have an understanding of each other’s finances in case of job loss, health problems or anything that will cause financial problems.  Unmarried couples need to make sure that they have a game plan in case one of them cannot contribute to the financial responsibilities that come with home ownership, even if the problem may be temporary.
