Ripping the Roof Off Real Estate (the book)

By
Real Estate Services with MyST Technology Partners

I just finished Mollie Wasserman's new book, the same title as this post. It's an ideal book for someone like me - I'm just an ordinary consumer in the world of real estate. I do have a little more insight into this industry, but not enough to give me any significant advantage; perhaps just enough insight to be dangerous.

This book is a ripping good reference that consistently reminds you how important a complete working knowledge of real estate is if you want to be a successful homebuyer or seller. Mollie explains in no uncertain terms how valuable a good real estate professional can be - no rational person could read this and ignore her insightful advice.

I like Mollie's style - very down-to-earth; she makes the entire subject of real estate more approachable for the average consumer. I especially liked the section about the four financial potholes to steer clear of and I won't spoil her book sales by revealing them here. ;-) Overall, a very enjoyable and quick read that exposes a number of hidden aspects of real estate that serve as excellent guideposts for everyday homeowners and investors alike.

Hey Bill,

I'll be sure to pick up a copy. I agree that knowing just one element of Real Estate is not sufficient. I've enjoyed learning the title/escrow,appraisal,inspection and agent sides as well :)

"... consumers, investors, or agents?"

I consider myself an ordinary consumer and I found it to be quite helpful in shaping a better understanding of real estate. I've already passed it on to one of my kids (22 yrs old) and I believe she'll also find it really useful as she prepares to buy a first home. I wouldn't rule out its usefulness to real estate professionals though - but we should get some real estate pros to comment on that angle.
