All you need to know to make a start
on 27 November 2012
This really is a book which explores the ins and outs of buying and selling a house. The pitfalls are highlighted: how to negotiate with an estate agent; how to decide how much your present home is worth; solicitors' costs; how to get a mortgage; how to know whether your proposed purchase is a `good' buy or if the person buying your house is genuine; etc., etc.
The book is clearly written and easy to read. Everything is laid out from beginning to end; all is logical and well thought out. Whether you are a first-time purchaser or someone who has moved several times, there is much to help make it easier and overcome any difficulties. The chapters are well signposted and the index at the end makes it easy for the reader to find out what they want to know. So whether you want to start at the beginning and look at the property market, from how to value a property right through to the day of removal, you will find all this in this book.
It is excellent and I could see nothing which had been omitted. It really is the A.B.C... of buying, selling and moving. I am tempted to say everything you wanted to know but were afraid to ask! It won't take out the stress of buying and selling but it surely will make it a lot easier!
