By Scott Trench & Mindy Jensen

Start the home-buying process with your eyes wide open—and outsmart the world’s most common financial trap!

Buying a house is more than just trading money for a deed. Between choosing your real estate agent and lender, picking the right neighborhood, and finally, choosing the house itself, you're suddenly making more decisions than you ever thought possible. All this while trying to keep a level head for what may be the biggest purchase of your life!

 Speaking of big purchases—buying a house isn’t always a good investment. Your home can either be a destroyer of wealth and freedom or a generator of the same. This book will show you not only how to afford your first home, but also how to make a decision that gives you the most financial flexibility possible.

Scott Trench and Mindy Jensen of the BiggerPockets Money Podcast have been buying and selling houses for a collective thirty years. In First-Time Home Buyer, they’ll give you a comprehensive overview of the home-buying process so you can consider all of your options and avoid pitfalls while jumping into the big, bad role of homeowner.
