In this part . . .

Play ball! When you’ve done all your preliminary homework, you’re ready for this part. Here’s where we show you how to negotiate a super deal and how to get your home inspected from roof to foundation so that you know whether it’s in perfect shape or riddled with expensive defects. Because you can’t close the purchase until you get homeowners insurance, we explain where and how to buy the coverage you need. Finally, we describe some of the legal and tax ramifications of your purchase, along with ways to make sure that your deal closes smoothly and without unnecessary costs.
