Managing Your Money As A New Homeowner

This book is for new homeowners with less than 3 years of experience who are looking to start their homeownership journey on the right foot. 

After emptying her savings and accumulating thousands of dollars of credit card debt, like many first-time home buyers, Danielle Desir found herself strapped for cash.

Living paycheck to paycheck, she realized the way she managed her finances had to evolve if she wanted to get back on track.

Refusing to remain stuck, Danielle got serious and implemented the strategies outlined in this book. In three years, she went from broke to paying off over $22,000 of her mortgage, in addition to pursuing other financial goals.

Danielle Desir is an affordable travel and personal finance blogger and podcaster, freelance writer, and author of three other books: Affording Travel, Traveling With A Full-Time Job, and Iceland: Nature, Nurture & Adventure.
