Homebuyers Beware: Who's Ripping You Off Now?
Everything you thought you knew about financing a house has changed. Your future depends on knowing today's mortgage and credit realities: Relying on older information could cost you a fortune or keep you from buying a house altogether. In Homebuyers Beware: Who's Ripping You Off Now? - What You Must Know About the New Rules of Mortgage and Credit, Carolyn Warren reveals the new realities of home financing and shows exactly how to take advantage of them, whether you're buying your first home, refinancing, struggling with imperfect credit, or planning to invest in real estate.
Homebuyers Beware reveals new secrets homebuyers simply can't afford to miss and exposes new scams that target today's eager consumers - including new loans that look great on paper but are every bit as dangerous as yesterday's subprimes. Unlike other mortgage guides, this book fully reflects today's radically new mortgage requirements, in addition to the latest federal housing legislation and how to improve your credit rating.
After getting fed up with what was going on in the mortgage business, I wrote Mortgage Rip-Offs and Money Savers, a book that became The Washington Post’s August 2008 Book Club pick-of-the-month and earned reviews in leading newspapers ranging from The Boston Globe to the San Diego Union-Tribune. Repair Your Credit Like the Pros is an informational, do-it-yourself guide to credit improvement. I have over two decades of experience in the mortgage industry and worked for some of the nation’s leading retail and wholesale lenders.
