WomanSource Catalog & Review: Tools for Connecting the Community for WomenDiscrimination is still a factor in the marketplace and women home buyers, especially single women, can be susceptible to being taken advantage of by sellers who think they can pull one over on you because you're a woman. Additionally, real estate brokers and lenders are sometimes weary of women purchasing homes buy themselves. Your best defense is to know what you're talking about and this book covers everything a first-time home buyer should know: what to look for in a home, how to prequalify for a mortgage, financing, house inspections, closing procedures–all presented in a question and answer format. Owning a home does take a certain amount of responsibilty, but it's fun and it's a good investment. The stuff you need to know isn't difficult, and if you know what to expect and what questions to ask, it will remove a lot of anxiety from your first purchase.
