I am a Canadian preparing to buy my first house in the US. I read this book non-stop from the first page to the last. Every bit of information is useful. I recommend it to any buyer interested in finding out what are his/her options. I will surely re-read it throughout the buying process. (Posted on 7/6/2012)
