Take Me Home

How to Rent or Buy in a Hot Home Market

by Jules Older, Ph.D.

When the Olders were suddenly faced with the need to find new digs in San Francisco, one of the world's most competitive house and rental markets, they put on a full-court press. What they learned from this and earlier home and apartment searches in New York, New England and New Zealand—and what that knowledge can do for you in your search—is what TAKE ME HOME is all about.


Here's how editor David Kernek described TAKE ME HOME ... TAKE ME HOME is a how-to book with a difference—well, with many major differences: It isn’t in any way banal, preachy, hopelessly impractical and unrealistic, written sloppily, cliché-ridden, pious, or mind-numbingly dull. It’s the antithesis of everything that makes it impossible for me to get beyond the first page of most how-to books before taking them to the thrift store, having first hurled them into the trashcan. The Olders were hit for six (as we say in Old England) when they were told they had to quit their much-loved apartment in San Francisco. It was the kind of news—and just plain bad luck—that could put folks on the dark road to ruin. Jules tells the story of their search for shelter (of an equivalent, high-end standard) with economy, gusto and wit, and along with it, comes up with invaluable tips for finding a home of your own in the planet’s most desirable places.
