Format: Paperback
Par for Dummies series -- very informative, useful, clear and easy to read. Lays out upside potential as well as downside risks. As an adjunct, I've been using a beta service at realquest dot com which lets me search for pre-foreclosure, foreclosured and bank-owned homes in my local area. Perfect combo.

I'm a first time home buyer and I really got interested into foreclosures and tax deeds. Right now there's just a lot out there that's for sale retail price but there's a lot more that's actually discounted through foreclosures. If I can buy the same quality for less price, why not right? This book helped me sort through a lot of the terminologies and helped me understand what to look out for. Very quick and easy read and recommended along with other foreclosure books I found helpful.

This book is invaluable for someone with little real estate experience and little knowledge of foreclosures. It gives you the fundamentals, which will allow you to specialize and then look for more targeted books and updated strategies.

This book has been very helpful to my husband and myself. We are just getting started with this and the book is simple, easy to understand, and very informative. I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about wanting to learn, and having it explained to them in detail.

Thanks, Ann

Excellent information, too bad the market is the way it is and people are losing their homes. The author is concise and accurate and anyone that has money to invest would do well to review this information before putting their money out there. The author makes it fun and interesting while making sure you have all you need to avoid the pitfalls; especially in today's market.
