Format: Paperback
this book covered all the bland facts about buying a home in a very engaging and interesting manner. i've read a few home buying books that lack appeal and the ability to make the reader want to turn the page. this is not so in the BBB's Buying a Home book. it took my attention and held on to it with ease. i recommend this book to anyone who isn't really wanting to know about the home buying process but NEEDS to know. it will keep you interested so that you end up WANTING to read about it.
