Buying Solo - The Single Woman's Guide to Buying a First Home
by Vanessa Summers

FINALLY! A book that caters to single women who are in the market to buy their first home...or who have just begun to entertain the idea! As the cover of the book reads: "Don't wait for Mr. Right -- make the best investment of your life!"

Vanessa Summers presents an in-depth look at the process of purchasing your first home and provides excellent inspiration and motivation to spur on single gals toward the ultimate goal of owning a place of their own.

I admit it, I am soooo jealous.   Writing an inspirational book for single women has been a goal of mine!

If you would like, please post on the group page of the Single Home Buyer and Seller page.

I've got to read this one.  Three out of my last five sales were to single women, a great niche market.

Hi, Lisa! Yes, I highly recommend it - of course, keep in mind there will be parts that you disagree with, as I did. But I do think it is a good motivator and definitely can help a buyer who is on the fence really put things into perspective!

I see few books, seminars, or marketing campaigns targeting the single home buyer.  Since I enjoy helping this underserved market, it's always nice to see a new entrant.  Funny thing I've notice though, it seems that more of these are aimed at women (who seem to "get it" more easily than men).  I welcome more single women into homeownership with much respect for their insight to get their own place, whether or not they have kids to help fill it up, they can create a family more easily than men, so it's quite self preserving for them to become home owners.
