Description

ARE YOU IN THE MARKET TO BUY A NEW HOME? Are you a real estate agent or builder whose clients need help in buying their new home? Do you wish there was one simple guide that helps you through the process of buying a home and explains everything from the key players in the housing business to interior design choices and architectural styles? DREAM HOME is that guide. It provides home buyers with insightful commentary on the American housing industry and turns readers into more informed real estate consumers. This book will help you: * learn about the process of making and marketing houses * understand how selecting options for your home is a major cost factor * consider the impact of styles and themes on the identity of your home * communicate what you want instead of automatically accepting what you are offered. This is the DELUXE EDITION with full color illustrations. You can also buy an E-book version. An economy edition with black and white illustrations is available. The text is the same for both editions.
