This book was jampacked with information. You can tell the author really knows what she’s talking about from personal experience. I really enjoyed the parts about bank loans and advice given there as well as getting the house appraised and tips and tricks for that. Wish I would’ve had this for my first home purchase!

Buying home is one of the most hectic and challenging thing to do nowadays ! Seeing an audiobook that helps understanding the whole process is an outstanding manner is simply amazing! not only does the audio help better understand the steps and process but, more importantly it shows lots of tips to save your money in every step. We have seen people wasting tons of money buying home and later they got condemned to working their whole life, to pay back their loan. This is insane. Shopping around, negotiation strategies, finding the right people, the right home for you .... and many more secrets / tips are some of the great stuffs taught in the audio! Highly recommend it

It is unquestionably a unique topic. Before purchasing a house, who thinks beyond the basics. I used to be interested in the number of rooms, bathrooms, and the kitchen in a property. However, this book did an excellent job of providing me with a wealth of information concerning home buying. It's worthwhile not just for me, but I can pass on these tips to my friends and anyone else looking to purchase a house. The section most appeals to me is "what type of House is right for you" and Yes! Money-saving tips added to my account to save more money, and it's actually helped me better understand the financial aspects of buying a house. Listening to this has made me more confident. This is a book I highly recommend.

Very thorough!

I got this for my daughter who currently has dreams of owning a home and she absolutely loved it. We listened to it together and I even learned a thing or two. The money-saving tips and negotiation advice built up her confidence. This audio will show you what to expect and prepare you for the whole house buying process. The narrator also had a great voice and excellent pacing, a joy to listen to.

It takes the sting out of buying your first home

Lots of my friends are now starting the journey towards buying their first home. It is certainly a right of passage, but a scary one at that. I wanted to get an audiobook with the steps my friends and I would need to take in order to successfully buy a house in the future. The narration was clear and the pace was good. I'm sure the information will certainly come in useful.
