For me this book really helped me to think differently about how to get my down payment and closing cost. I used some ideas and created my own based upon what I learned.
I have owned my own home now for over a year and it has been one of the best things I have ever done. We did an FHA loan and used other sources to secure the downpayment. We did not use our credit cards, which I disagree with the authors about. I bought a great home in a solid neighborhood and the value of the home has already gone up. I am expecting to refinance my home in 2-4 years and see my mortgage go down. This is such a better deal than paying rent :)
