    This book is an excellent purchase for a wide constituency of business students, investors, teachers, realtors and the public in general. It is written in simple English. Basic terms are defined with examples and pictures; where necessary to illustrate

    the concepts in the simplest mode. The book is worth the purchase price many times over. This book will assist you in interpreting contracts, reading advertisements and dealing with

    both sellers and buyers of real estate.

    As I struggle with an on-line real estate salesperson course, I find myself referring to this little 500 page book more and more frequently for its concise non-recursive definitions and real world examples. Let’s face it, even if you have owned property before and have gone through the loan process, the actual terms and topics could confuse even the most ambitious and diligent wordsmith, student and/or beginning real estate professional let alone the average Joe just starting out. Unfortunately the course I have selected to use does not always provide a clear or simple-to-understand explanation of the subject being presented so reinforcements in the form of this book offer the rescue remedy needed with a quick flick of the alphabetical listings which include cross-references and over 200 figures and 58 tables. Abbreviations, Mortgage and Measurement Tables and Mathematical Formulas formulate the book’s appendix. For me, the book’s multitudinous examples using each term in a sentence or in a way that makes sense out of the concept are most valuable. The smaller size and compact format of this book makes it a better buy then John Reilly’s “The Language of Real Estate,” which seems to follow the same format but with far less of the essential examples.
