Process



Apr 24, 2001, 01:00 ET from David Weekley Homes

    HOUSTON, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- One of the most rewarding and
 self-fulfilling experiences anyone can undertake is buying a home.  It also
 can be one of the most complex and frustrating.
     Getting started is half the battle -- from the beginning of the home
 buying process, questions, concerns and uncertainty abound.  How much home can
 I afford?  Should I consider building a home or buying a resale?  How do I
 qualify for a mortgage loan and will I be approved?
     "How to Buy a Home Without Getting Hammered" ($24.95 Worthing Brighton
 Press) answers these questions and many more, offering advice and helpful tips
 to consumers considering the purchase of a home.
     This self-help book is written in a clear and easily readable format and
 covers a variety of topics, ranging from neighborhood and home selection,
 financing, design secrets to hidden costs of which buyers need to make
 themselves aware.
     Since buying a home represents one of the largest investments most people
 will ever make, David Weekley, chairman of David Weekley Homes, one of the
 nation's leading homebuilders, authored "How to Buy a Home Without Getting
 Hammered" to guide consumers throughout the process.
     The book contains several brief anecdotal stories from Weekley's 25 years
 in the home building business, including his own personal experience of
 sleepless nights prior to closing on his first home and then losing his job
 60 days after moving in.
     "How to Buy a Home Without Getting Hammered" also assists consumers,
 whether first time or experienced home buyers, in determining whether to buy
 resale versus a new home, addressing construction expectations and dealing
 with warranties.
     Addressing consumers' need for a book that breaks through the industry
 jargon, "How to Buy a Home Without Getting Hammered" is written in a casual
 style and relates to consumers on a personal level, providing a section for
 readers to take notes, as well as a neighborhood rating worksheet and house
 hunting wish list.
     The 241-page book also includes a section on the ten biggest mistakes in
 home buying, ranging from not doing your homework to failing to check out a
 builder's reputation.
     After reaching significant milestones in the home building industry,
 including selling more than 30,000 homes and being named to Forbes' list of
 the "500 Biggest Private Companies" and Fortune's "100 Best Companies to Work
 For," Weekley decided to share his industry experiences, both good and bad, to
 shed light on what can be a very complex process.
     "Buying a home represents one of the largest investments an individual or
 family can ever make," commented Weekley.  "It also can characterize one of
 the most trying and stressful life experiences people will undertake.  With my
 years of home building knowledge, I wanted to simplify this process and
 provide a useable book that educates consumers in terms they can understand."
     "How to Buy a Home Without Getting Hammered" currently is available on
 Amazon.com.
