More About This Book

Overview

Sal DeStefano is a real estate attorney and title insurance consultant with 25 years experience buying and selling homes. He's put everything he knows into The Home Buyers Playbook: 12 Rules to Win to help you buy your first or next home. DeStefano covers the entire home-buying process, from deciding whether to buy at all, to finding the right home and mortgage, to negotiating price and terms, and everything else you do up to and after closing day.

Unlike most home-buying books, DeStefano's view is from the trenches. After losing both parents before his 20th birthday, he rolled up his sleeves and clawed his way to the American Dream. He earned an M.B.A. from NYU Stern School of Business, and a J.D. from St. John's University School of Law. He practiced real estate law in two states, and is a partner at a leading title insurance agency. DeStefano doesn't just talk the talk. He has personally bought, sold, and leased over a dozen homes.
The advice you find in The Home Buyers Playbook comes from the heart. He says what a parent with decades of real estate experience would say to his own children when they seek his help buying a home. The tactics and techniques he reveals in The Home Buyers Playbook, sprung from hard-won victories and painful losses, will help you buy the right home, at the lowest price, and with less stress.

Dr. William D. Danko, co-author of the New York Times best-selling book, The Millionaire Next Door, said of The Home Buyers Playbook:

"Quite frankly, I liked it, I liked the fact that you were exposed to the opportunities and problems associated with real estate at a young age. Your insights are right on target."

DeStefano helps you decide if buying a home is better than renting. His self-reflection exercises give you a clear understanding of your reasons for buying. The better you know your reasons, the better choices you'll make when you search for a home, negotiate pric
