Finding a new nest.... Feb 19, 2001
Buying a home can be the most rewarding, yet the most stressful experiences of your life. It is like living between two worlds. You are leaving the safety of one nest and suddenly flying to the next, which you then have to spend time getting all in order.
Joe Breckner is a top producing real estate agent and understands how potential home owners feel. By dividing the details into manageable parts, he helps you understand the searching and financing aspects of buying a home. Marc Robinson has written finance books and has consulted with top Wall Street firms for over 15 years. This is a book written by experts in the field of financing and purchasing. This book will help to encourage a sense of self-confidence in the buying process.
Since most people own at least four homes in their lifetimes, buying a home is going to be an investment of money and time. This booklet will help you answer the following questions:
1. How much home can you afford? 2. How much will closing costs, mortgage insurance, home insurance and monthly upkeep and utilities cost in a new home? 3. Why is buying better than just renting? 4. How do you get a prequalification letter? 5. How do you select the best agent? 6. What do you desire in a new home? 7. Is a targeted search best? 8. What should you know when making a deal? 9. Where do you get loans? What is a title? Why do you need a home inspection?
Now, one thing that might happen when you buy a house. You could put a very nice offer on your dream house, only to find someone else got there first. That just happened to us, so don't worry too much about it. If it happens, remember..."There is always something better!" The house you will find next will be the one you really wanted anyway.
So, before you even think about closing a house deal, open this book and you will be amazed at how much goes into buying a house. After the process it through, you will have a beautiful home you can truly be proud of owning.
