My husband and I were purchasing our first house on the other side of the country, but this book helped us learn everything that we needed to check to help decide if this was the right move for us. It helped us to make the best possible choice and we couldn't be happier! I'd recommend this to any first time home buyer for certain!
This book is going to be sooooooo helpful to my husband and I in the coming months as we look to buy a house. I've read it, and my husband is reading it right now. We will be first-time home buyers, and I recommend this to anyone who is in our situation. Jumping into this is scary especially with the housing and mortgage situation being what they are right now. This book seems to covers it all... how to pick and use an agent, what to expect from negotiations, what all the closing costs are, all the options for mortgages, etc., etc. Very helpful to us dummies!!
