Home Buying Process in MaineWhether you've spent years saving and preparing to buy a home or have purchased many homes before, understanding the process is always a good place to start.

Regardless of your level of expertise, real estate transactions are complicated, especially since the recent changes in lending requirments by banks and mortgage companies.
