The Seventh Edition includes coverage of such timely topics as real estate agent's liability and professional obligation to buyers and sellers, brokers who represent buyers, advance fee listings, errors and omission insurance, foreclosure and timesharing.

Format: Hardcover
If you want to learn pretty much everything you could hope to learn in a basic real estate class, this is a great book to do it with.

My professor basically rambled the whole class, but I read the book and still made an easy A in the class.

All of the details are covered completely, but are easy to read. The beginning of each chapter lists all the definitions for that chapter on one page, which makes for an easy review.

There aren't any color picture, but the black and white diagrams do just fine, and it keeps the cost down, which is fine with me.

This is one textbook I'm actually considering keeping.

This product came ahead of time. It was the cheapest I could find and exactly what I needed. The book barely had anything wrong with it.
