Title: The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buying and Selling a Home

Author: Shelley O’Hara and Nancy D. Lewis

Collection: Adult Non-fiction

Summer is the busiest time of year for home buying and selling, and like many other people, my wife and I are in the market for a new home, our first.  I know a good bit about the local housing market because I’ve kept an eye on it for several years now, but I didn’t know much about the process of buying a home.  So like any good librarian, I turned to the library’s collection for help.  I was very pleased to discover that the Allegany County Library System has several books available to help us find out way along this confusing path.

Even though this particular book is almost a decade old, I think it contains a lot of excellent information.  It gives tips on everything from finding the right home for you to closing the deal, and it has special sections for second homes, condominiums, and even coops.  It also covers the subject for both the home buyer and the home seller, which provided me some good perspective.  Best of all, The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Buying and Selling a Home puts it all into easy to understand terms that make me feel more confident as we move ahead with our plans.
