The Complete Idiot's Guide to Buying and Selling a Home

Home is where the heart is! You're no idiot, of course. But this real estate stuff has you really confused. And sometimes you just want to throw up your hands and say,“Oh, give me a home—any old home!" Don't settle for a shotgun shack! Whether you're on the market for a new place or want to unload your old abode (or both), The Complete Idiot's Guide® to Buying and Selling a Home, Fourth Edition, will help make the whole process less painful. Learn more about getting your home ready to sell, how to decide what to ask for your home, understanding a sales contract, fixed-rate, adjustable-rate, and two-step mortgages, the best ways to market and show your home, what to do if you don't get any offers, what happens at closing from a buyer's and seller's perspective, the tax implications of buying or selling a home, and the benefits of refinancing and how to go about it.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine As this splendid guide unfolds, it's fun to realize how smoothly it's been crafted. The ideas are easily comprehensible, making sense at even a visceral level. The program covers a lot of ground but comes across like an articulate neighbor talking over the backyard fence. As always, Grover Gardner is an excellent interpreter of this kind of material, which could sound dry and mechanical without his vocal pizzazz and nuanced intelligence. Like many Idiot's Guides, this one is technically comprehensive and clear, yet personal enough to speak to the emotional sensitivities most listeners will have when buying and selling a primary residence.
