    1. Finding home Although I just bought a home in California this past year, I thought it d be kinda fun to read through this book to reflect on the process and what a process it was , and maybe learn a few details I didn t know before And I was right this book was actually fun to read Not only does it give an excellent overview of the entire California home buying process including determining the type of home you want to can afford to buy, finding and funding that home, working with real estate p [...]

    2. Really helpful, up to date guide It was refreshing to find advice that was so specific to our area and to the current housing market Previous guides I had checked out from the library were published during the housing bubble and were doling out wildly unrealistic advice Think you can t afford it Keep trying till you find a lender willing to give you a no doc, nothing down loan The book also confirmed my long held suspicion that Californians especially Angelenos are into ghosts Note this sidebar [...]

    3. Since I did not use this book to actually buy a house, just learn about the buying process, I m not sure my 5 stars are creditable As a basic primer on California law, the process of using agents, what to watch out for, etc, I thought this book was highly informative The information was well organized, easy to find and understand It does not cover every possible aspect of home buying or selling in great detail, but it is an excellent source for a first time home buyer to get a realistic framewor [...]

    4. I don t actually plan on doing this, but I was curious about the process I m not any, which I suppose fulfills the function of the book Informative and thorough, but lacking in the way of zest The authors acknowledge the insanity of the Californian housing market without really being either reassuring or wry about it.If I ever come into enough money to purchase in my crazy expensive area, I d probably reread it for a refresher on all the necessary stages, but I would supplement it with other res [...]

    5. A very clear and detailed description of all the steps involved in buying a house in northern or southern California, with things to watch out for The section on how to find a good real estate agent is a bit thin I recommend Charles Jaffe s The Right Way to Hire Financial Help 2nd Ed A Complete Guide to Choosing and Managing Brokers, Financial Planners, Insurance Agents, Lawyers, Tax Preparers, Bankers, and Real Estate Agents as a supplement for that I read the 12th edition 200 , but an updated [...]

    6. I bought this book two years ago with the best of intentions but got a little side tracked There s actually a newer now edition but hopefully the essence will still be helpful This time I mean business I am going through this thing with a highlighter in hand So far the book mostly seems to be advocating common sense and patience But it s nice to have reassurance that this whole house buying process is possible even for the average person and even in CA.

    7. First of all, I got this as an e book from my library I never had heard of that concept, but I love it I have read and re read many chapters and have found it extremely helpful I m a novice at all of this home buying stuff, but of all the books I read, I finally am beginning to understand a lot of the mortgage lingo The forms in the back are very helpful as well.

    8. Well organized, well written, very thorough it even includes a section on what to do if Martians occupy your home before you take possession , and with pointers to lots of additional helpful information on the web and other sources I d recommend it to anyone buying a house in California, but particularly if you are a new buyer who finds the whole process a bit confusing and overwhelming.

    9. This book is ok a nice checklist of stuff you should think about before buying a house It s a bit annoying to have the kindle version of this book because there s no way to print out the forms.It s hard to really say I liked reading a book about real estate, but I guess it s useful.
