1. You’re Unaware Of All The Perks Available To You

The government isn’t always out to get you, sometimes they might help you out too. In fact, many countries have schemes in place where certain groups of people (government workers, military officers, families with a certain amount of kids, newly married couples, etc.) are able to get a discount or some other perk on their mortgage. The important thing is to know what and when you’re eligible for a certain perk, and apply for it.

Given that a new house can cost about $400,000 or more, we bet you can take any little help you can get!
