  2. This really is a good book for beginner’s guide to home buying. It is very easy to read and understand. After going through it about two times, I had a general understanding about what should be done.

    one thing I wished the author had done is about short sales, REOs, and foreclosures. I bought a house in 2009 while the housing market was in depression and I think it would have been a lot more helpful if he included more explanation about those kinds of properties.

    Overall, recommended
