GeRue's Reviews

A Country Bookstore

Getting There


These books are for those who want to move to the country but only want to make that one move. I was inspired to write mine after meeting too many people who had moved to the wrong place and had to uproot their families and do it all over again. If you have a nomination, please e-mail us.

HOW TO FIND YOUR IDEAL COUNTRY HOME: A COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE, by Gene GeRue

This is the third edition of my book. It is listed first not to say it is best but because country life begins with finding your place. There are 32 chapters, each a subject I feel is vital knowledge to help you make your first purchase the right one, so you don't have to uproot yourself and loved ones a second or third time. I also drew 93 maps to give you essential information at a glance. Reviewers have said this is the best book on the subject, but the testimonials that warm and humble me most are those received from readers. "This is one of the best books I've ever read" (Carol Post, Altamonte Springs, Florida). "Your book is superb" (Jerry & Clare Perkins, Livonia, Michigan). "After reading your book, I feel like we are close neighbors" (David & Sheila Knapp, Winnebago, Illinois). If after reading my book you have any unanswered questions, please e-mail me at genegerue@ruralize.com. And, please--don't forget to enjoy the journey.

FINDING & BUYING YOUR PLACE IN THE COUNTRY, by Les Scher & Carol Scher

Les Scher is a lawyer. The premise of this book is that you want to act as your own real estate agent, so most of the book presents the myriad aspects of real estate law, appraising and negotiating price, finance, contracts, escrow, title insurance, and of course, using a lawyer. If you want to act as your own agent, buy this book. If you want to use an experienced real estate agent to handle your purchase, buy my book, which tells you how. A caveat: this book is rather light on finding your right place, so if you buy this book, you need mine also. Here's Amazon's page FINDING & BUYING YOUR PLACE IN THE COUNTRY
