Buying Your First Home

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with CastNet Realty TREC#263257

Buying Your First Home is a major decision and many people are making that decision this year.  Approximately 40% of all home sales come from first-time home buyers.  Home sales have been record breaking in 2020 with many people moving from larger cities to smaller towns or suburbs and even into the country.  

My new book, Buying Your First Home: A Step-by-Step Guide from Dreams to Reality is designed for people who know nothing about real estate or for those who wish to know more.  I hope many will turn their dreams of home ownership into reality and take the steps to make that decision.  As Realtors(R), we know the benefits of owning your own home far outweigh the responsibilities.  

                                                                                                 Buying Your First Home

Many people have no clue where to begin.  My book walks them step-by-step through the whole process.  If you know of someone wanting to buy but still unsure, this book may give them the confidence they need to go forward.

The book is written in two sections for two different kinds of readers.  The first for those that want only the basics, a fast read.  The second section is for those who are more analytical and want all the facts.  A glossary of terms is included to help the reader fully understand the processes.

Available on Amazon in paperback, e-book, or Kindle Unlimited.  Makes a great gift.

HI "Danta Claus" Hopper,   It is a good idea.  I hope agents without their own books will use mine as I am retired from real estate sales.  I love the hat!  Merry Christmas!  Ho Ho Ho.

Hi Ricki good to get info out for first time home buyers.  I had a ebook about this subject 10 years or so ago and it flew off the 'shelve' per se.  Yours will as well.  Congrats!

Hi Michael J. Perry,  Every first-time home buyer should have some knowledge before they start their search for a home.  Most people today want to be informed as much as possible, that's a good thing.   Merry Christmas too!

Great post Ricki Eichler McCallum and what a great idea! Having the two sections reminds me of "Man's Search For Meaning" I bet your buyers love it.

Hello Ricki - first-time homebuyers are important to the real estate industry but also to the communities where they purchase.  The benefits are truly exponential over time.

I wanted to stop by and wish you a Groovy New Year! May your 2021 be your best year yet, Ricki!
