This book is the definitive guide on how to PRICE and VALUE real estate in a competitive market.
The author writes candidly as a consumer advocate and as an educator how the current appraisal system methods, commonly used by most home sellers and real estate professionals, are unrealistic for determining the competitive price or value of real estate in an active market.
In other words, states the author. Today’s competition determines today’s value, not yesterday’s sales.
With real-life examples and humorous stories, Kerry exposes the many-layered parts and parties of real estate transactions. If you’re a home seller, he advises how to position your property to get the highest price, and if you’re a home buyer, how to get the most value for the price paid. He also teaches consumers how to get the most out of their real estate professionals, including agents, home inspectors, mortgage lenders, and others.
