This book is excellent! It is an under estimation to call it a step by step guide. This book outlines the whole house buying process from start to finish in easy to understand terms. Not only does it tell you what to do, but also how to do it. It is filled with case examples which highlight the pros and cons of differing decisions to be made. It describes in detail what must, could, and should happen in the buying process, together with tips and suggestions in case it doesn't. Importantly it also considers the effects of new legislation and how the current process will be affected by this. Prior to reading this book I found the house buying process to be daunting, but after reading it feel confident and enthusiastic about it. I wish I'd had this book many years ago when I bought my first home.
