I like it!

It did help me understand ARM vs Fixed rate loans and all the paperwork and information that will need to be provided when applying for a mortgage. I really enjoyed reading this and it didn't feel like homework like some of these types of books do.

The information is valuable.

I read this book from cover to cover before buying my first home last year. The information is invaluable, especially the section on how to find a sound realtor and how not to buy more house than you should. The author also tells you what to look for in a house and alerts you to pitfalls that the first-time home buyer might be completely unaware of, and walks you through how to obtain a mortgage and the various steps involved in bidding on a house and closing the deal.

Great one.

Short, easy to read, i spoke to home buyers as i was reading this book their mistakes were the same warnings in this book and their advice after learning matched the advice here. Definitely worth becoming knowledgeable in this type of financial decision.

Excellent

I've read over half the book so far and it's been great. It's an easy read but it's not so easy that they make you feel dumb. I now feel a lot more prepared for buying a house this year! Very happy with the purchase.

Great!

This is a perfect book for first-time home buyers in the U.S. Simple to understand but well written. My perception of ”For Dummies” was improved as a result, and now I want to check out other titles in the series to learn more about all kinds of interesting stuff. It’s like taking crash courses on life skills you should’ve learned in school but somehow never didn’t.

Very Helpful

This book really helped me navigate the home buying process. I referenced it often. I recommend that you read it before you start searching for loans and homes, and i guarantee that you will return/refer to certain sections later.

Recommended,

A very good book for a non-professional like me. This is one of the better "Dummies" book that I have purchased. After reading it cover to cover, I felt like I just finished a college course on the subject. Highly Recommended!

I learned so so much and feel so much more confident as I look for a house! And it was a fun and easy read, believe it or not!
