Format: Paperback
There are shelves of reference books available for home buyers, but I found this one to be of great help in explaining the step-by-step process of home buying.

Not only does the book guide you through the daunting task, but it explains terminology in fairly good depth that buyers are likely to run into while trying to buy a home. Words, phrases and acronyms such as contingencies, earnest money, clear title, ASHI and purchase agreement have become part of our vocabulary, thanks in part to this book.

I also appreciated the worksheets (some courtesy of Ginnie Mae) that help to prepare a potential buyer when viewing homes. The sheets encourage home buyers to look closely, take notes and prioritize needs. This is critical when you look at four or five houses in a single day and details can easily be blurred without an organized effort to keep the information for each house separate.

Though I don't think any one book can answer every home buyer's questions, this book was a great starting point for us as we sought to demystify the issues surrounding home buying. Highly recommended.

The Home Buyer's Question and Answer Book covers every facet of the home purchase process: from figuring out what to look for before starting your house hunt, to nailing down the finances to protecting yourself after the sale. Learn why home inspections are important, get a better grasp on the mortgage process (including details on exactly what lenders look for), and understand the basics of negotiating in a seller's market. This book gives you everything you need to have a successful, low-stress home buying experience.

Format: Paperback
First-time home buyers have hundreds of questions about the entire process from start to finish, and there's no better place to look for answers than Bridget McCrea's Home Buyer's Question And Answer Book, which covers over a hundred questions, provides sample loan paperwork, and more. McCrea is a former Century 21 real estate agent: this background enables her to pick out the most common questions asked, and to answer them in clear, simple detail.
