Format: Paperback
What is a prospective homebuyer to do in 2010 following the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression? The aftershocks of the housing crisis still find the economy reeling. Real estate professionals and consumers posture for millions more foreclosures, increasingly complicated short sales negotiations, and stricter lending standards.

"There has never been a better time to shop for financing," declares author Ilyce Glink, if you can pass the muster of credit and run the gauntlet of new lending benchmarks.

"BUY, CLOSE, MOVE IN!" (Harper Paperbacks 2010) holds a prism to the 2010 real estate market and casts a wide-ranging, holistic spectrum of the home buying process, for both primary homes and investment properties. Author Ilyce Glink is a best-selling real estate writer with almost a million books in print. Her new book unravels the mystery of the cabal that brought housing to its knees. Her explanation is simple and elegant, and she ties it to readers' expectations and specific, ordered action plans.

It's time to clear the shelves of outdated get-rich-quick real estate books and dusty infomercial CDs. Glink's book promises to show readers "How to Navigate the New World of Real Estate - Safety and Profitably - and End Up with the Home of Your Dreams." The book delivers on her promise from one chapter ("Ten Things That Have Changed in Real Estate, Ten Things That Haven't") to the next ("What Buyers Need to Know Now") ... and the next ("The New World of Mortgage Finance") ... and the next.

"It isn't that a few things have changed; the whole industry seems to have been upended by the collapse of the housing bubble.

6 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Luetta Newnam "Real Estate Broker" on June 13, 2010
Format: Paperback
A couple of weeks ago I followed a link on a Tweet written by Frances Flynn Thorsen. It happened to be such a compelling book review that I just had to have it.

The book written by Ilyce Glink, "Buy , Close, Move-In" is the latest in Think Glink products about all things Real Estate for "real people".

I commented on Frances' Tweet and guess who popped up? @Glink! By happy coincidence the author was planning a trip to Scottsdale to offer the keynote address for a national real estate conference. She graciously offered to meet with me and sign a few books before the conference. I quickly ordered a box and met Ilyce as soon as she arrived in Scottsdale and we had a fabulous time talking real estate, family, and eating buffalo chili at the Raddison Fort McDowell in Scottsdale

I really had no idea who Ilyce was until she made reference to the "first time " she appeared on "Oprah". I asked her to describe the moment she got the call to be on the show and she said, "Well, I just arrived home after being a guest on "The Today Show".

"Oh," said I.

Since that day I have been sleeping with Ilyce Glink's new book, "Buy, Close, Move-In." As a 25+ yr veteran in Scottsdale Real Estate, shouldn't I already know everything?

Not even close! During my Real Estate career I have been blessed as The Contractors Wife at Casa Buena Realty / Construction. and I have grown with an ever changing Real Estate environment..

As a veteran broker I am working on my next 25 years and "Buy, Close, Move-In" is a great tool to remind me about the changing landscape in real estate. I am not an avid book reader, which explains why I have been sleeping with the book next to my bed and reading a bit at night and a bit in the morning.
