When my wife and I decided a few months ago that we were going to buy our first home, I went to our library and took out two books on home buying. One of them was your 'Survival Guide'. I toted that book around for the past two months and finally turned it back in today after we closed on our house. My wife and I are the type who want to know as much as we can about everything that we are involved in, and your book really helped us to navigate the very involved and complex road to home-buying. We left the closing this morning feeling like we had done everything right, from shopping mortgages to negotiating after the home inspection. I believe that your book has helped us to save thousands of dollars! Thank you for writing such a fine resource!
