The Essential Dictionary of Real Estate has been my essential companion to my real estate classes. The print is clear, a decent font size, and the definitions are well wrtitten. Anyone new to real estate should purchase this book to help clarify the language allowing them to be well informed about contracts, contigencies, agency, title work, and descriptions.

Useful book, especially when I'm stuck for an understandable definition of a real estate term. Some of the definitions are different than those given in the real estate class I'm taking. Then again, some terms have more than one definition, and both are correct. Not state-specific. This is for national.

as a first time property buyer i was getting bogged down in a lack of language skills. Nothing meant what I thought it did. The Essential Dictionary of Real Estate cleared that up for me and I was able to procede with confidence
