Publisher's Summary

Home Sweet Home 

Do you want an essential guide for beginners with professional tips to make the purchase of your first house easier? Then you’re in the right place at the right time.

First of all, after Covid-19’s drama, I do really believe this is the best time to invest in a house. Prices are going lower, and now it’s your turn to step forward, into your future.

When you are looking for a house, weigh the advantages and disadvantages of a list of things such a mortgage, location (location, location!), etc.., it is extremely important to see which is most beneficial for your current situation.

Then, before you hop in the car with your real estate agent or head out on your own to look at homes for sale, do your financial homework. After all, there is no sense in wasting your time and energy looking at houses that are out of your price range.

Consider how much mortgage you can afford so you do not burden yourself with a financial obligation you cannot handle. Once you have done it, you are better prepared to start house hunting!

Does it looks complicated? I’ll stand on your side for the whole procedure, there’s nothing to worry about it!

All this will be explained in some depth in our guide.

More precisely, this book covers:

  • Do’s and don'ts while buying a house
  • Budget 
  • Real estate agent
  • From offer to key
  • Credit score
  • Finding your perfect realtor
  • And much much more!

Great general advice.

It does kinda get off topic towards the end and start taking about flipping houses. Over all it was a worth while listen.

This is good information on the basics. It is a short guide but I think our covers what is promised. A nice addition would be some reference material, like a checklist to download.
