This book is really useful,
This review is from: How to Buy a House (Hardcover)
This book is probably best for a first time buyer. A lot of the advice is common sense, but as a first time buyer it's reasuring to know that you have all of your bases covered. There are also a good few golden nuggets too, which could easily save several thousand pounds compared to the cover price.
It's true that the book makes no warning that house prices can go both up, and down, but I think that they were correct to ommit it. The book is about buying a house, not the housing market in general. Over a year after it was published the book is very relevant, but any discussion of the housing market would be completely out of date.
It's true that the information could easily be condensed into fewer pages, but the design and layout is very good.
