Buying a house is one of life's most monumental decisions. Dian Hymer, a nationally syndicated columnist and one of America's most successful real estate brokers, comes to the rescue with a home-buying guide based on decades of experience in helping people find the perfect homes to fit their needs and budget. Readers will learn, among other essentials, how to pick an agent, negotiate a contract, and close on a deal. Charts, checklists, and sample contracts demystify the home-buying process, while sidebars offer real-life anecdotes, helping readers avoid the mistakes made by other, less-informed home seekers. For first-time buyers as well as those needing a refresher course on navigating the changing housing market, Starting Out is the one essential guide no prospective home buyer should be without.

Review:

We learn from our mistakes, but it's an expensive education when you're buying a house. Dian Hymer's home guide is a better bet, from the first "should we buy a house" glimmer to the closing. Written in a relaxed, organized manner, Hymer knows the housing game, she's familiar with the errors people make (like not reading the purchase agreement before signing), and she's knowledgeable about hot topics such as short sales and on-line home shopping. Rather than stumble blindly into many dollars worth of house, it's worth following Hymer's guide from the start--for your pocket and your sanity.
