First-time homebuyers in California, or those moving to a second home here or downsize; or out-of-staters who plan to move to California and are looking to understand its unique real estate market.
REASONS TO BUY THIS NEW EDITION:
Over 400,000 homes typically change hands in California every year. (See https://www.car.org/marketdata/marketforecast/)
Though prices are coming down a bit, buyers will need to know how to deal with the bidding wars that are a common part of home buying in high-demand areas of California.
California law contains important protections for buyers, which they should understand; including the country’s most demanding seller-disclosure requirements.
Because lawyers are not a required part of California home purchases, it helps to have plain-English advice on the legal parts of the transaction, such as when you’re really “in contract” to buy.
The only book to give a comprehensive, time-tested overview of every aspect of California homebuying; legal, financial, and practical.
