    The purchase of a new home constitutes a significant undertaking in the
    lives of most homebuyers. The general anticipation is that the new home
    will bring them a period of enjoyment and happy use from the day they
    take possession until the day they leave. For the majority of these
    homebuyers this is the biggest single purchase they will make and is a
    process that will not be undertaken again for a significant number of
    years. Some homebuyers do undertake the purchase of a new home
    more than once and become well versed in the mechanics of the new
    home buying process and also the various impediments they have to
    overcome along the way.
