Essential Homeowner/buyer Books
- The Virgin Homeowner by Janice Papolos
- The Walls Around Us by David Owen
If you are a first-time homebuyer, I highly recommend reading The Virgin Homeowner before you start looking at houses, and certainly before the home inspection (I did not).
The Walls Around Us is slightly more oriented toward the do-it-yourselfer, but it contains a wealth of information, and is laugh-out-loud funny at times. Brilliant.
