America's Number One Real Estate Expert gives you the tools you need to uncover the REAL story behind any house.

Surprises are only fun if it's your birthday, not after you make an offer or buy a home and "SURPRISE"—it needs a lot more work than you thought. Unfortunately, if you ask most homeowners they'll have a war story about their house that begins with, "I never looked closely or asked the agent or seller about that...!" Or "I didn't realize how much replacing the damaged floors would cost." It's easy to get flabbergasted when you're house hunting and forget to ask important questions or overlook crucial details. Let Robert Irwin, America's number-one real estate writer let you take charge of your home search with Home Buyer's Checklist, a step-by-step, room-by-room, top-to-bottom guide that shows you exactly how to "precheck" a house before you make an offer.

  • Consider or Eliminate When you're looking at a dozen homes, find out when it makes more sense to forget it than to buy it.
  • Ask the Inspector Know which potential problems to later point out to your inspector so that they become the seller's headache and not yours
  • Neighbors and Neighborhoods Invest in quality of life (Green Lawns: YES Cars on Lawns: NO) and you will add value to your home
  • Your Home's Life Span Learn how to asses the quality and durability of your home in order to avoid costly surprises down the road

Take this book with you when you look at homes and let it suggest what you must ask about each house. With practical and no-nonsense advice, Robert Irwin answers the question: "Where do I begin?" Begin HERE!
