Specifically, the book will show you: How to identify your current buying status; How to enhance your status ranking; The definition of buying power and ways to increase it; How mortgage companies really work; How to increase your credit worthiness; How to raise your your first deposit quickly; All the mortgage companies, with their criterias for First time buyers including 125 per cent LTV and high income multiple mortgage lenders; How to get value for money in property; How to deal with estate agents and negotiate effectively with them; Where else to look for that bargain property; How to increase your salary!

This book would have been an ideal buy for you if you would have been a first time buyer in the year 2004, the year the book was published. But that was before the Recession. By now, most of her tips are outdated, although you can still get some help from the book- how to identify your Status ranking and how to increase it is surely useful, but the reference section won't help much anymore as this covers mortgage lenders and their rates from 2004. I would recommend lending the book from your local library to see if it is of value to you and only take note of the tips that are still relevant for you.
