I was undecided on whether to use a real estate agent or not. I found that I got fair and balanced advice!

This is covered a lot of things for house buying by providing many Canadian resource. But now is 2009, after the Tsunami, the world changes, the markets change and Canada changes. Therefore, a new version should be release in order to help the poor new home buyers.

I purchased the book used and was concerned as to how "used" it would be. I was genuinely happy to see that the book looked almost brand new except for the fact it had a book mark in it. The content of the book has been great. I knew in advance that it would be,Buying and Selling a Home for Canadians for Dummies because I had borrowed the book from the library before ordering it. Useful and a great price!
