Synopsis: Do you dream of owning a home but don’t think you can buy one alone?
These days more and more single women are buying homes on their own, whether they’re are purchasing a home because it’s a good investment, buying a condo on the beach for the view (and the tax write-off), or finally realizing their dream as a DIY remodeler, they’re making it happen.
Now with Own It!, you can too.
In Own It!, homeowner and author Jennifer Musselman covers the how-to’s and hiccups of home buying for women braving the process alone. From figuring out your financials to deciding whether or not to buy and making the offer, from the inevitability of buyer’s remorse to refinancing, this book provides guidance, a friendly voice of reason, and trustworthy advice.
Review: HOUSE HUNTING and dating have a lot in common. Both involve long lists of must-haves -- three bedrooms, stable family, walk-in closet, higher education. But just when you think you've found "the one," there's always a compromise. That corner home with the immaculate lawn? Termites. The new guy in accounting? Two kids.
But in real estate, like love, the unexpected doesn't have to be a deal-breaker, as Jennifer Musselman says in "Own It! The Ups and Downs of Homebuying for Women Who Go It Alone" ($15.95, Seal Press), due out on June 1.
Imperfections add character, right? And many gals love fixer-uppers, really.
To that end, "Own It" almost reads like a dating manual, with chapters titled "Growing Out Your Roots," "Dirty Little Costs of HomeBuying" and "Are Your Signs Compatible?" But Musselman's main message is empowerment: Twenty percent of home-buyers last year were single women, according to the National Association of Realtors -- which means no waiting for McDreamy to show up before you make that down payment. -- Express, April 30, 2008
If you're a potential single woman home buyer who is sitting on the fence, Jennifer Musselman's book, Own It: the UPS and DOWNS of Homebuying for Women Who Go It Alone, will help you to make that decision to buy with confidence. Musselman writes in a breezy, fun style, with the voice of a woman who has been there and done that. She starts by talking about the real fears facing women who venture into home ownership without a partner or spouse, covering such issues as: * Will owning your own home hurt your chances of finding a mate because couples often buy their first home together? * Are men intimidated or put off by women who don't need them? * Will men find you less sexy if you have equity in a home? -- About.com
