Originally published 17 years ago, this book has enjoyed amazing longevity as a professional handbook for real estate agents. In clear language, it begins with a look at communities, neighborhoods and sites, then delves into the details of interior and exterior house design and styles. The book extensively covers the construction of a house, the materials that make up a house and the mechanical systems (heating, plumbing, and electric) that make a house live. Among the many books on listing, selling, and marketing, this manual stands alone as the only guide to educating real estate agents about the product they sell most often--the single-family home. Salespeople, home buyers and anyone looking for a down-to-earth treatment of home construction and design principles will find it in this comprehensive reference.
