Part 2
Money Talk
You’ve probably heard the old expression “Money is the root of all evil.” Well, it is also the root of the home-buying process. As you work your way through this part of the book, you’ll learn all the financials you need to know about buying a home, including mortgages and mortgage lenders and interest rates and how to find the lowest one.
This part of the book discusses cash purchases, gifts, and other forms of liquid assets. You’ll also read a primer on what to do if you have bad credit, previous mortgage defaults or foreclosure, or bankruptcy, and what your chances are for buying a home now.
