My Thoughts:

I guess it's kind of obvious why I'm reading this book.

I've been thinking about buying a home with my husband since last June, but I knew Dave and I weren't ready yet, so I chose to do some research instead, just to see how I should prepare. I looked at several books, but kept coming back to this one. So I went ahead and got it.

For someone who needed a step-by-step explanation of what to expect, this was a great book. Egypt Sherrod kept the language simple and understandable, yet extremely readable. I actually had fun reading this. It gave me a plan to follow, and kept my expectations realistic, without making me feel overwhelmed

If you're looking to buy a home, this is a good book to refer to. Definitely recommended.
