       So helpful and broken down in an easy-to-read manner
    I'm a teacher and absolutely loved this book.
       A great beginner’s guide.
    This is the first book I have read in the home buying process. I'm still learning but I must say the book made me feel much more comfortable with the process I'm about to undergo. The book is very comprehensible and I enjoy its humor and relatability, Raymond said. Another plus is that I was able to read it in a short amount of time given my busy lifestyle, he said. Thanks for the great advice!
       good book but...
    If you want to read a book for a business purpose for rentals this is not it, like the title says, is a great book with the info you need. The only thing I dont agree with when they say to have 700 plus credit to buy is that we can still qualify with just 630+ but that is a great book.
    This book is a goldmine of information, Michael Schweer said. It's not only jam packed with everything I didn't know I needed to know about buying a house, it's also easy to understand and entertain. I never thought I'd read such a useful real estate book that has so many puns in it, but here we are. Thanks for the great podcast, Scott and Mindy. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.
       Spend $12 for your $200K+ Purchase
    This book is very comprehensive, yet personable to the point that it becomes almost impossible to read. Made of such books, it reads much more like a conversation. I am in the process of potentially my first home purchase and feel so much more prepared after reading this book. There are still nerves with the process, but knowing I have the table of contents to read back on each process puts me at ease. Even if you think about it, I mean, $12 or whatever it is for a $200K purchase is a no brainer in my opinion.
       Give this as a gift !!!!
    As a BP devotee, I've read many books, but this one struck me as a great primer. After reading it, I'm glad I've given each of my college-aged kids a copy in case they need to buy their first house. Homebuyers beware: The book does a great job of scratching just about every itch of home-buying considerations. It's a great present, said Melissa, "especially for a baby."
       Great Advice from Two of the Best!
    This book is a great primer for anyone considering their first home purchase. It's also useful for second- and even third-time home buyers. Mindy and Scott are two of the best out there, and the advice and resources they provide are invaluable, he said. Together with Scott's earlier book, Set for Life, First-Time Home Buyer would make an excellent present for friends or family members who are serious about taking their next steps toward financial independence.
       Realistic practical guide for home ownership
    Like all BiggerPockets material, podcasts and books, this offers realistic actionable information to help buy your first house. Since I first purchased the book, I have purchased six more. I'm in the process of doing my first deal, so I can't say too much, he said. I hope to be a homeowner and landlord by the end of 2021.
       Must read BEFORE buying 1st or next house!
    Thanks for the compliment. This book gave me the courage and knowledge to jump into real estate investing and the confidence to learn as I go. I would recommend that this book be added to the high school curriculum.
    A great book, said BP Publishing UK. Perfect understanding of the decision to rent vs buy vs house hacking etc. This book is highly recommended for anyone buying their first home. Set Life free! If you think you're on the right path, these two books will set you on the right path.
