  • deciding between a house, condo, co-op or townhouse
  • exploring your local market for the best value

  • qualifying for and lining up financing
  • getting the right inspections and insurance

  • successfully closing the deal

Read through the real-world experiences of over 20 first-time homebuyers, as well as valuable insights from a team of 13 real estate professionals, including:

  • brokers
  • attorneys who specialize in real estate
  • a home inspector
  • a neighborhood researcher
  • a mortgage specialist
  • and more

Along with this step-by-step handbook, you'll get The Homebuyer's Toolkit, a CD-ROM that includes dozens of forms and MP3s which will help you find the right place, crunch the numbers, interview real estate professionals, and even borrow down payment money from your parents.

The brand new 3rd edition of Nolo's Essential Guide to Buying Your First Home is fully updated to reflect the dramatically changed housing market, including emphasis on how to do the right kind of research before deciding on a price and the terms of your offer.
