Thanks to Mark and Elaine, I am getting a bigger house on a bigger piece of land in a much better area, instead of buying a smaller house on a smaller piece of land by a known builder here. I pulled back a $5,000 check I paid this builder after reading their book and bought a piece of land instead.
