A house is the biggest purchase most people will ever make, but most people don't know the best way to buy a home. The book covers everything you need to know about the home buying and selling process so that you are not taken advantage of. including:- Deciding on how much money to spend on a house(don't let your lender or agent decide for you!)- Deciding whether you should buy or rent- How to get a great deal on a house that will build instant equity- How to get the best loan with less money down (if that is your goal) and the lower overall cost- How to find the best real estate agent and lender and why you need them- How the process works including inspections, appraisals, title insurance, mortgages, closings, escrows, HOAs, etc...- How to fix up your house and maintain it- How to find contractors to help you fix up your house- How to sell your house for the most money- When and if you should refinance your house- A glossary full of definitions for real estate terms- Plus bonus chapters on starting a career in real estateThere has been a lot of talk about real estate being a bad investment. Many financial and economic advisers suggest buying a home may be worse for your finances than renting. However, I think most people do not take the home buying or selling process seriously. They put all their faith in other people to get the right deal done for them. If you blindly buy a house based on what your real estate agent or lender tell you, it may not be a good investment! However, if you are able to find great deals, get a good loan, and take care of your home, real estate can be an incredible tool to build wealth. I am a real estate agent, and real estate investor who has done very well buying hundreds of houses. I try to teach what I know to others to help them make smarter and better decisions. If you know the right way to buy a home, it beats renting every time. There is a lot of information in this book, and depending on your real estate experience you may know some of it, or be familiar with a lot of it. I have created four sections with many chapters to make it easy to navigate. The first part of the book focuses on the bare basics of buying and selling houses, while the later sections go deeper into each aspect of real estate. I hope you enjoy the book and learn how to make your real estate purchases awesome investments.

Buying for the Home examines how strategies of retailers were both arbitrated by, and negotiated through the actions and desires of the homemaker as a consumer in early-modern, modern and post-modern society. Drawing on a wide selection of interdisciplinary work from established scholars and new researchers, the volume is organised around four key themes: retail arenas and the everyday; identity and lifestyle; fashioning domestic space; and cultural practice. Through ten linked case studies, Buying for the Home forces us to consider the fractured space that existed between the world of goods and the middle- and working-class home.

An essential and fun read about buying your own home - from First Time Buyers, for First Time Buyers. Illustrated throughout by well-known creative artist Ben Jones to make you smile. How to get thousands of Pounds for free towards your purchase. Work out a feasible financial scenario early. Research your property and be a step ahead. Be best prepared for viewing and offering. Understand and manage the conveyancing process step-by-step. Learn from others Almost two years ago, me and my partner had this brilliant idea: let's buy our own home! We were fed up with renting and thought we got this - a few months and we are sorted. Little did we know. When we embarked on the adventure, first thing we realised was that we didn't actually have a clue what we were doing, falling for the tricks of the trade at almost every step of the journey. We relied on online material and a few books explaining WHY you should buy, but not really HOW. We tumbled through the process from step to step, without being properly prepared for what was supposed to happen next and what was realistic. We had to let one house go after its survey revealed lots of issues that we could have spotted, then spent more than half a year trying to find another one and finally wound up in a chain that caused an additional 6-month delay. Thankfully, we are both scientists. In our best bid to get on top of everything, we started to do uncountable hours of research, calculations, reading up and talking to relevant people - agents, surveyors, mortgage brokers, other First Time Buyers. While we were suffering through the conveyancing process, I finally realised that I increasingly needed a therapeutic outlet. This is how this book was born: a catharsis, a plea that no matter what, something good must come out of this!! I thought - if nothing else, let's pass on everything that we have learned to make this a little easier for someone else. Because no-one deserves the unnecessary chaos, stress and financial losses that come with buying your own home. This book is our compiled wisdom to make the home buying process more transparent. We hope it will help you plan, make informed choices, be better in control of the process and, most importantly, know what is coming and what to expect. The purpose of this book is for you to be prepared and less at the mercy of 'the system'. Contents Chapter 1. WHAT YOU SHOULD CONSIDER RIGHT NOW Chapter 2. CONSTRAINTS Chapter 3.
