In a light and humorous way, yet clear and detailed enough to be of real help, the book teaches the basics of home care, safety, and getting into a new community. It covers everything from moving into the new place, to seasonal and yearly "to do" lists, to dealing with a host of repairs.
The book is laid out in a sensible way and contains sidebars with lots of helpful hints and fun anecdotes. It's something I could easily see becoming a bible for the new homeowner, female or male, but is especially excellent for women because it avoids the jargon often used when such information is geared toward men.

Finally, here's the book to fill the void for the first-time home buyer who has never had the opportunity or the need to take full responsibility for their home.
You are not an idiot if you don't know how to care for your own home, you are simply uninformed about it. There's a big difference.
The Savvy Woman's Guide to Owning a Home will help you become more conversant with your home's functions, how it works and what to expect, without taking up a lot of your valuable time.From the Author:
I noticed that there isn't one homeowner's manual for women who don't want to do-it-yourself, but do need to know how to run and maintain their house. Sure, there are plenty of books on how to fix things, but what about the people who aren't handy with tools? While millions of women own their own homes, what is the percentage of those who know how to maintain the house, much less fix it themselves? Or how about the women married to men who can't use a hammer? Or the homeowners who don't have the time to DIY?
Over the last 20 years, I've helped many of my friends with their homeowner problems—from giving advice to actually doing the job. It was time to write the book.
