The introductory preface explaining the author's purpose for writing the instruction along with her personal first-time home buying experience promotes the information in an approachable and inspirational way, while the well-paced organization of the lessons prepare first-time home buyers for success. Customers come away with the information and confidence they need to buy their first home.

    "All the information in a well-organized form!"
    If you could sum up Buy Your First Home in three words, what would they be?

    informative, useful, well-organized


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This is a non-fiction book.


    What does Suzan Lynn Lorraine bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She gives it more personal feel. It is as though the author was talking directly to me and therefore I am more likely to remember all the great advice given.


    What did you learn from Buy Your First Home that you would use in your daily life?

    So many things! Especially the parts about loan management and urchase contract are amazing; I was taken through it in an ntertaining, information-packed way! Also, I am very motivated to find and purchase the home of my dreams on my own, with the help of a trusted real estate agent, now that I have all the information I need. I recommend it to everyone who is thinking about buying their own house - this audiobook will prepare you well.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that more people will find this audiobook as helpful as I have.

    "Practical & complete guide to buy your new home"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Buy Your First Home to be better than the print version?

    Both versions are equally effective. I can listen to the audio book when I'm driving, or when I'm cooking, or doing my household chores. I can use the printed version to highlight important notes, tips and reminders.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the author giving her own personal experiences on how they purchased their very first home, and the lessons learned with her clients. I also admire her parents for teaching them to save at a very young age.


    What about Suzan Lynn Lorraine’s performance did you like?

    Yes, absolutely! She speaks very clearly and I love the tone of her voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Your dream of home ownership in 9 easy steps


    Any additional comments?

    This audio book has served its good purpose to guide home buyers achieve their goal of home ownership. You'll find the answers to your questions about the home buying process. Two thumbs up, highly recommendable!

    "Light at the End of the Tunnel"
    What made the experience of listening to Buy Your First Home the most enjoyable?

    I was able to listen "on the go" which made it fun and an easy read.

    The author shared how she and her family saved money by taking frugal vacations to visit great sites in California, such as Yosemite and the Highway 49 Gold Rush town areas.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Buy Your First Home?

    I've talked to co-workers about how easy it is to listen to this book and act on the solid advice given.

    "Void of Good Information"
    What disappointed you about Buy Your First Home?

    I found this book to be void of any good advice, or if it does contain good advice is it buried under mountains of drivel. This book may be a good choice if someone has literally zero knowledge of home buying, but if one has even a basic understanding of the home buying process and wants to truly understand the details this book is not for you.


    Have you listened to any of Suzan Lynn Lorraine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narrator has a good voice and reading skills, and is not the problem with this book.


    What character would you cut from Buy Your First Home?

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    Save your money, and skip this book
