This informational pamphlet, produced by HUD in a three-part series on homebuying, covers the process of choosing to purchase a home and searching for a property to buy. Over a series of 33 commonly-asked questions and answers, the publication addresses topics ranging from how owning compares to renting, to whether the prospective buyer should be present for the inspection of the home they wish to purchase. This publication is the first of three in the 33 Answers series, and includes a HUD Home Worksheet for filling in relevant details about a new property.

This report is part of the collection of scanned historical documents available to the public.
