I Have Been Sleeping With Ilyce Glink!

There, I said it!

A couple of weeks ago I followed a link on a Tweet written by Frances Flynn Thorsen. It happened to be such a compelling book review that I just had to have it.

The book written by Ilyce Glink, “Buy , Close, Move-In” is the latest in Think Glink products about all things Real Estate for “real people”.

This was a good primer for me on buying a house. I will be checking out some of her other books as I try to decide when and where is the right time for me to take that step.

Definitely a little dated now but VERY current and topical when written 5 years ago. Not a be-all-end-all guidebook, but a good reference point as you learn how to navigate the biggest purchase of your life. Recommended to anyone who is looking to buy their first home.

Very informative! I went ahead and ordered her book 100 Questions Every First-Time Home Buyer Should Ask so that I may learn more.

edit 6/11/11 - if the book is missing anything, it's more information on short sales and foreclosures. From looking at some other reviews for Mrs. Glink's books, I'm also going to take a look at Home Buying for Dummies and Mortgages for Dummies.

A quick, informative, and easy-to-understand read about buying a home after the housing market crashed. A must read for first time homebuyers in the current economy.

I appreciated the up-to-date info and the website suggestions. It's not comprehensive but very good.
