The first 50 Rules about Real Estate

The first 50 Rules about Real Estate365 Rules about Real Estate is my ongoing series about buying and selling real estate. Every day this year, one rule will post here on my blog. The book 365 Rules about Real Estate is almost finished and I hope to publish in February. It covers: general rules about real estate, rules about buying real estate, rules about neighborhoods, rules about choosing a Realtor, rules about offers, rules about mortgages, rules about home inspections, rules about condos and new home construction, rules about moving, rules about getting ready to sell, rules about selling real estate, rules about open houses, rules about selling privately, rules about contractors and handymen, rules about attics, electrical, furnaces and air conditioners, fences, flooring, gardens and yards, home improvements and maintenance, bathrooms and kitchens, roofs and windows. My aim is to take the mystery and stress out of the home buying and selling process.

Here are the rules of my upcoming book – 365 Rules about Real Estate. Every day in 2013, I am adding another rule. Email me here for more information about the book or if you’d like to talk to me about your real estate needs.
