From the Author
This is more a workshop than a book!
The 'Smart Buyer' know-how you need
is laid out in stories, lessons, examples and
real-life case studies so that it embeds
automatically in your brain -- unlike books
that leave you remembering nothing.
You can read any chapter as a stand-alone guide.
You'll learn how to get the best deal possible
on your next home purchase, how to get the
best mortgage -- and how to protect
your present and future wealth.
My aim is not just to teach you,
but to inspire you.
Joseph Éamon Cummins

This book is such a welcome update that I bought copies for all of my Buyer Agents as part of their professional continuing education and development. Plus, it has commentary by top Exclusive Buyer Agents and Exclusive Buyer Brokers from around the country, explaining why they choose to represent only buyers.
While there are countless books out there about home buying of varying quality, very few give you the hard truth about the disadvantages home buyers face in the market – and why most of the real estate industry prefers to keep it that way. I encourage you to read this book, and reap valuable insight that most of the industry doesn't want you to know!
The sales manager wanted to dismiss my trade. I told him I didn't care either way about the trade as long as the numbers work. In reality, I would have had to take a second trip to L.A. to drive my old car back home and really wanted to avoid it. I told him that if I sold the car outright, I could get $6,000 for it. As he inspected my trade, I mentioned that I had just taken a 4,000 road trip and averaged 33 mpg, and that the car runs like a Swiss watch. That was true, but having the original clutch meant that sooner or later an expensive repair was in the near future. To my surprise, I was able to get $1,000 more for my trade than I expected, plus the dealer knocked off $2,000 of the 2017.
All was well and good until I got into the finance office. The finance guy really worked me to add an extended warranty and to add a service plan. This is where they make their $. As pushy as he was, I was even more stubborn. I told him on his first sales pitch that I would decline all extras. He kept trying to "save me money", but I was more stubborn than he was persistent. I finally had to tell him it was a long drive home, and that I was tired and wanted to finalize the deal and go. I was not going to budge regardless of how hard he tried. In the end, I got a sweet deal all of the way around. I thank Mr. Cummins for sharing his strategies and methods that saved me several thousand dollars!

The parts which especially interested me were those ones on invisible negotiation. These techniques could work even when you’re asking for a raise or buying a car or any expensive product. He explains them simply, so you get to understand why they work, you don’t have to slap the table or make a nuisance of oneself, like the book says. It’s clever, but the way it’s presented it’s not complicated. But how many people know this? Not a lot, I’d say. The readers of this book will get to know it so they’ll be the ones that’ll win the best deals.
Super useful for a first-time buyer
I liked the easy to read practical language.
It's elegant and informative advice continues to serve me and save me money.
