I recently received Mr. Bernabe's Mind Your Own Mortgage book for review from Booksneeze. I felt that this book couldn't have come with more timely advice for our family, as we are currently in the selling/moving/buying process in the real estate market.
Purchasing a home and managing a mortgage within a budget can be overwhelming, frustrating, and even confusing, especially for first-time homebuyers. Mr. Bernabe helps to clear up typical misunderstandings, give advice for making the best mortgage decisions, and reveal the terms, deals, and gimmicks often used through mortgage agencies. He also helps to understand how to budget to afford your mortgage, and how to pay off your mortgage timely enough to be able to enjoy retirement down the road, all with a Christian perspective. There are many real-life examples/scenarios throughout the book, which makes it easy to relate to as you read.
I have already cleared up misconceptions I had concerning mortgages, refinancing options, etc. And, I am looking forward to using this new knowledge as our family finds our next home to purchase. I would suggest this book to anyone that is looking to make future choices regarding a mortgage.
I received a copy of this book as a complimentary copy to review. The opinions written above are mine and are honest.
