From the Publisher:

Second, and worse still, he is lulled into thinking he doesn't need to know - a mistake as costly as burning $1000 bills, the author claims. The end result is that almost every buyer pays more than is necessary for the home he buys - but he never discovers his misfortune!

Homebuyers, almost without exception, place trust and confidentiality in the traditional real estate agent, who must always work for the seller's best interest!

This can cost the buyer a small fortune in overpayment - money the buyer, with know-how, can easily save.

The author's observations and conviction led to three years of intensive research. He talked to nearly three thousand people in more than thirty states, agents, brokers, salespeople, homebuyers, sellers, buyer brokers, investors,attorneys, state regulators, and consumer advocates.

Not One Dollar More! came directly from that research.
