Dream Home: What You Need to Know Before You Buy
By Anthony Alofsin
ARE YOU A FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER? Are you a real estate agent or builder whose clients need help in buying their first home? Have you wished 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 homebuyers with insightful commentary on the American housing industry and turns readers into more informed real estate consumers. It explains architectural styles and shows how branding and themes have replaced them. It gives practical advice on basic issues that affect the quality of life in your home, including siting, proportion, choice of facades, and landscaping. And much more. 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.
