Buying your first home is probably the most exhilarating material experience you can have. Nothing else compares. It's where you hang your hat, where you rest your head; it's a source of security, an investment in your financial future. More importantly, a home becomes part of the psyche that houses your most powerful memories. You can reminisce about a rental, but you'll never love it the same way. Your home is where you build a workshop or cement a swing set into the ground or plant a rose garden like my dad and I did. There really is no place like home, especially when it's your own... - Gary Keller, author of Your First Home
Written by Gary Keller, Dave Jenks and Jay Papasan, the authors behind national best-sellers The Millionaire Real Estate Agent, The Millionaire Real Estate Investor, and SHIFT, Your First Home lays out the many benefits of home ownership, provides a practical eight-step process, and emphasizes the value of working with a team of qualified professionals to ensure a smooth process. The eight-step process consists of making the decision to buy, how to hire a great real estate agent, determining what you can afford to buy, securing the best financing, recognizing the right home for you, crafting a winning offer and negotiating with sellers, spotting serious issues at inspection, closing on your new home and how to maintain it for years to come. You'll also learn about successful creative financing strategies and ways to overcome less-than-perfect credit.

First time home buyer
It was a very informative book and I have yet to review the associated online materials. I removed two stars because it’s presented in such a way that home buyer can buy a house regardless if they can afford it and should almost blindly trust their agent. It’s worth a listen, just with a critical ear.

great book for new real estate agents
I'm a real estate professional who has dealt with investors all his career, and never knew the details about buying a home traditionally. This book helped me get my first traditional client to closing, and it helps me deliver great service to my lifetime clients through education.
