Before jumping into the housing market and looking for a home, many prospective buyers seek advice from friends and family to better prepare themselves for what lies ahead. For those looking for additional perspective, books written for those going through the home-buying process can serve as a valuable tool.
 
Here are five great books that everyone looking to purchase a home should read.

Buying a home can be a confusing process, and making mistakes can be costly. That’s why “The 106 Common Mistakes Homebuyers Make (and How to Avoid Them)” by Gary W. Eldred is the perfect book when it comes to avoiding these mistakes. This eye-opening guide arms buyers with the information they need to become an educated consumer, ensuring that the property you buy is both a comfortable place to live and a great investment for the future. Eldred surveyed hundreds of homebuyers, real estate agents, homebuilders and mortgage lenders to find the biggest mistakes people make and provides solutions so you don’t fall into the same traps.
