Before sealing the deal in any contract, it is important that you know the ins and outs of the thing that you are trying to get into. Considering how things become so fast and easy these days, a lot of people rush into getting things done and this includes buying of houses.
Remember to never go beyond your means. You are lucky if your move is sponsored as you do not need to worry about finding a new place and paying for it in your relocation. However, if you are moving on your own and you need to take all matters, financial or otherwise by your own hands, you need to be particular about your budget and your capacity to pay.
Also, make it a point to inspect the place that you are moving to. If you can afford it, if say money and time permits, go to the place that you are moving to. Check the neighborhood check the facilities and the general feel of the town or city. Ask your real estate agent to take you to the house that you want that way you get to see it personally.
