“The Essential Handbook For Buying A Home” by Karen Rittenhouse is a strong introductory book on the ins and outs of buying a house for the first time. This book is important to me because my husband and I intend to own a house in the D.C. area by February 2015. Additionally, we both plan to purchase wisely because of our shared agreement that this would be a home to live in for the rest of our current lifetimes. The following are some of the informative details in this guide: Pages 11-13: Buying A Home with a Lease Option Pages 71-75: Advantages of buying a Real Estate Owned by the lender (REO) property. Pages 95-96 and the end of the book: website links to online resources for homes. “The Essential Handbook For Buying a Home” by Karen Rittenhouse is more for those that plan on purchasing their first home, but she does state that it can also be for real estate investors.
This is a great book for anyone interested in buying a home. It has answers to the questions you would typically have and adds lots of additional information you will find useful in making a decision on buying a home. Buying a home can be a stressful experience and often the people you will be dealing with either don't have the answers you are looking for or often give incorrect information which can lead to additional problems. You will find this book a great and easy read.
