    Very Helpful Read

    It has been several years since I purchased a home and I knew things in the Real Estate world might have changed. I picked this book up at a friends suggestion and was very pleased with the content and the answers. I felt like I knew what to ask and what to expect as I prepared to purchase a home. The book mapped out each step I was going to go through, from forms that would be required to the final steps of the offer. I knew I was going into this process far better informed. It was also good to know from a lawyer's point of view what to expect. I was unfamiliar with what the home inspector's role actually was and this was a huge help. I can highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in buying or selling.
