This book is packed with information that will help you if you've never bought a home, or have done so a dozen or more times. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, should read Chapter 3 on selecting an Agent... If you are buying, selling, thinking of a career in Real Estate, or are already an Agent! --Anonymous-posted to amazon.com
David Rathgeber's book is the thinking man and woman's guide to buying a home. David uses a data-driven, analytical approach to buying a home which will dramatically reduce the emotional fears that inevitably arise when making such a big purchase. David's book will guide you through every step involved in buying a home, including steps you didn t even know about. For example, David provides you with a detailed list of questions to help you select a buyer-broker and how to develop a set of specifications for using the MLS computer system most efficiently. This book is also chock full of helpful appendices for figuring out how much house you can afford, what your mortgage payment will be, how to determine the selling price to asking price ratio, and more. After reading this book, I felt so much more confident about buying a house. I ended up with a house I love and a good investment. David's motto is - Information is power - and this is the book to buy if you want to feel empowered about buying a home. --Sarah G. (PhD)
We have read both of David's books and he is certainly knowledgable in real estate. --Anonymous-posted to amazon.com
