The Language of Real Estate

The Language of Real Estate is the result of many years of difficult and thorough work in researching the answers to everyday problems in real estate. Numerous books and articles on real estate taxes, condominiums, appraisal, finance, law, contracts and the like are good source materials for the real estate broker or salesperson, but their volume requires one to maintain an extensive and expensive real estate library. This book is designed to eliminate that problem. Now containing over 3,000 definitions, The Language of Real Estate is more than a dictionary; it is a totally functional real estate reference book - a comprehensive, encyclopedic, single-volume, instant-answer book to just about any concept or question concerning real estate principles and practice in the United States. $14 will be added to your order to cover shipping & handling.

The Language of Real Estate also contains several helpful special features:
  • A complete subject classification of terms to assist those who are concentrating their studies in specific areas.
  • A list of more than 350 abbreviations and their meanings, frequently encountered in the real estate business, such as special words, concepts and organizations.
  • An Appendix of real estate-related Web sites, appropriate to our entry into the century of the Information Age and the Internet
  • A sample closing problem, featuring prorations and computations common to most residential real estate transactions. The closing problem is illustrated on a settlement statement worksheet and on a RESPA settlement statement.
