Hi everyone

Hi there.

I'm finally just getting into personal finance. I got marred this summer and my wife and I are trying to get our ducks in order to buy a house. Looking around this site, it seems like a great place to bounce ideas and get information.

Welcome aboard. We may not have any knowledge about ducks, but it is a certainty we have an opinion about them.
