Booklist Review

In easy-to-understand language, Irwin has taken much of the stress and uncertainty out of home buying. A companion to Tips and Traps When Selling a Home [BKL Ja 1 90], this book provides the basic knowledge necessary to make buying a home less of a headache for the average person. The author addresses each stage of the buying process from choosing an agent, to negotiating with the seller, to closing the deal. Drawing on 25 years of experience as a real-estate broker, he explains common traps and misconceptions and offers tips on avoiding them--for instance, when the seller might be held liable for concealing defects in the house. This is one of the most accessible and thorough treatments for home buyers available; most public libraries should find it in demand, especially with the spring house-buying season well under way.
