Best-selling author, real estate expert and "Extra's" Mansions and Millionaires host Michael Corbett gives you some hot tips on the best ways to buy a home -- all from his new book, "Before You Buy!"
This week's tip:
A homebuyer's hidden expense is the cost of commuting. A three-bedroom home in the suburbs is nice, but the nightmare might be the hour-and-a-half drive to work! If you have the kind of job that puts you on the 9-to-5 work schedule, the whole commuting thing is an enormous factor in deciding where you are going to buy.
Best-selling author, real estate expert and "Extra's" Mansions and Millionaires host Michael Corbett gives the skinny on the best ways to buy a home in his new book "Before You Buy!"
"Now that we are near the bottom of the market, it's the perfect storm of buying opportunity -- great low prices, lots of choices, low interest rates," explains Corbett.
As one of his tips, Corbett says look for homes with a "battered history," such as:
--If the property has only just been listed and put on the market, the seller will likely still be hopeful of receiving a full-price offer. If it's been languishing on the market for three or more months, this listing is growing stale fast and the owners will very likely be ready to deal.

This week's tip: You have to shop high to buy low. Today, as prices are lower and sellers are sometimes getting anxious, always shop 10 percent higher than you really want to spend.
