This book has very little information. Most of what it covers is common sense: Did you know that foreclosed homes are auctioned off to the highest bidder? Did you know that you can buy a fixer-upper home for less than a show quality home? Oh my, the shock! If you are really looking into a foreclosed home, search the internet for a site with free or low cost postings for your area, attend a few auctions at your local county court house to see what happens, and don't get your heart set on any particular house.
