Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An attorney and a real estate columnist describe the legal, financial, and tax issues involved in purchasing a home for little or no money down. The text is designed for prospective homebuyers and is not intended to give advice on creative financing techniques for building a real estate portfolio. The third edition includes new sections on choosing an agent, using the Internet, and bidding. The volume does not include bibliographical references. Annotation c.
