Thank you for writing this book. I have been really nervous about home buying in the current market. After reading this book which I found very informative and easy to read I feel so much more confident in any decisions that I will make when considering the purchase of my new home. I really appreciated how the author presented the home buying steps in a very logical and sequential way in this book. What I particularly found helpful were the list and tips on each of the topics covered. I have already given this book to a friend who is also looking to buy a house.

I have read Michael Corbett's book on what to look for in buying a new home. I found it to be so interesting and informative in such a pleasing manner that I just know that I will find it easier to judge which home to choose. The manner in which he delivers the information is so interesting, light-hearted, and simplified that you don't realize you are actually being taken through a procedure which can be quite complicated. I enjoyed the book tremendously and find I know so much more now about purchasing a home than I ever knew in the past. It was so helpful and covered everything that I had been so unsure of before. I will recommend this book to everyone who is in the market for a new home, place of business etc..Thank you Michael for "Before you Buy"

I definitely recommend this book. Easy to read and straight to the point informationally. A great resource. Simplifies terms which can seem intimidating like equity. Love the no bones about it approach which comes across in Corbett's writing.
