Buy your first house with your eyes wide open and outsmart the world’s most common financial trap! From BiggerPockets CEO Scott Trench and podcast co-host Mindy Jensen, learn how your home purchase can destroy your wealth... or generate even more.

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 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!

Plus, no matter how desperately you want to escape the renter’s cycle, buying a house isn’t always a good investment. Your home can destroy your wealth and freedom or generate the same—and this book will show you 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.

This book is the first, and maybe most important, investment you can make in buying your first home. There are a lot of moving parts when buying a house, and Scott and Mindy present each step with simple and precise language, seasoned with a dash of humor.”

"Scott and Mindy have written an exceptionally clear guide… It will help you find the best home, make the best investment, and help you potentially save hundreds of thousands of dollars. The ROI on this book is insane… I'm giving it to anyone who asks for advice on how to buy a first home."

Grant Sabatier

Author of Financial Freedom and Creator of Millennial Money

"It's a rare treat when a book helps you see the world more clearly, and First-Time Home Buyer does just that. Instead of platitudes surrounding home ownership like 'it's the American Dream' or 'it's your biggest investment,' Scott and Mindy give a real-world masterclass on what to truly consider when purchasing your first home."
