Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

For most people, their home is their biggest investment. In 2000-2002, when stocks suffered and many businesses went under, the real estate market was a source of stability for the economy. A number of factors, including low interest rates, streamlined mortgage approval, and Internet listings, have helped to fuel the real estate boom in recent years. Although some economists believe that the real estate market may be headed for bubble territory, Lereah disagrees, arguing that continued low interest rates, a healthy boomer population, and the "boomer echo" of next-generation buyers should keep the market healthy for at least the next 10 years. But he says that in order to profit from this sector you should invest now. He offers tips on how to select a real estate agent, the ins and outs of mortgages, tax strategies, home improvements, investment properties, and vacation homes. Senior vice president and chief economist of the National Association of Realtors, he has written numerous articles on the subject. David Siegfried

From the Inside Flap

Whether you are a first time buyer or already own your home, ARE YOU MISSING THE REAL ESTATE BOOM? brings welcome news. David Lereah, chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, shows why the real estate market is poised to climb higher over the next decade -- and explains what you can do to profit from it.

Calling today's market a "once-in-every-other generation opportunity," Lereah shows property owners and would-be buyers the enormous investment opportunities that exist in real estate. Today's boom is not just driven by low interest rates -- there are a host of demographic reasons that show why real estate will continue to outpace other investment opportunities, from the growing needs of the baby boomer generation to the new ways real estate is marketed and sold.

Are you a first-time buyer? Looking to trade up? There has never been a better time to do so. Lereah explains what to look for when buying a home; which improvements add the most value to your current home; what to consider for when purchasing rental properties; how to evaluate REITS; and discusses the pros and cons of second homes. Full of insider information and advice (including how to analyze local markets and regional fluctuations), ARE YOU MISSING THE REAL ESTATE BOOM? brings readers the information they need to invest with confidence and reap outsized rewards.
