Great starting point

This book went beyond financial considerations for buying a home and had some interesting metrics related to time allocation, location (noise, nature, neighborhood) and what to value in a home including material belongings.

Required reading for first time buyers

Wisdom (based on science) is what you get here. If only all professionals considered the psychological implications of their client’s decisions the world would be a better place.

the intro is not representative

The book dwells on so much that is bleeding obvious and on so much that does not apply to me. Not everyone is American, has children and a wife, and a relationship with God, when they buy a house. I would love to return this book and get my money back if I could.
