I bought this basic set when I moved into an apartment a couple of years ago. Since Im back in a house now, I still use these tools the most, but I have also spent quite a bit on tools.

I would buy a set from Craftsman, they come with a lifetime warranty. Then overtime build on that and expand your tool set. As your skill level improves add more tools that are more job specific. Don't overlook air tools and a good compressor, pneumatic tools are a must have once you use them.
