I have to be honest - I didn't finish this book. A whole book about mortgages? Once you get the hang of it, playing with the calculators on is enough to learn what you need to.

I should have found a book that covered the entire house-buying experience. I'm not sure any book can really prepare you to buy a house, it's a paradigm experience. But surely there's a book that covers more than just mortgages.

That said, this book did have some really great information, and it helped me unde
Some of the info in this book is too basic so I found myself skimming through it very quickly. There was a little bit of helpful info and I will keep it as a reference but a lot of it was just stuff I could find in free online articles using a google search.
Helpful for me since I know nothing about real estate :)
Good basic information combined with entertaining presentation--from what I understand, this is a hallmark of the series, and it was certainly true for this book. Another selection from the house-buying saga of 2006.
I got this book when I went to work for Countrywide. Why, oh why can't I throw it away? Because you just don't throw away books, no matter how pointless they are, that's why.
