The Dictionary of Real Estate Terms, 7th edition , first characteristic is its Handiness, its length no longer than your open hand palm and weighing less than a can of beans .

Its important characteristic resides in the numerous figures ( drawings ), 209 figures in total, to make clear an explanation; if a figure is worth one thousand words, then this Dictionary feature makes it a welcome one.

58 Tables such as a budget table make it really useful to a beginner not educated in finance or accounting subjects.

Small size as it is , the text is legible without strain on your eyes and the entries are indicated in bold print double the size of the regular text.

Examples are given for all definitions .

The three authors seem well qualified : Jack Friedman is a CPA and a Real Estate consultant, J. Bruce Lindeman is a professor of Real Estate at the University of Arkansas.

Excellent text for a beginner in Real Estate ! Approximately 3 000 terms.
For those interested in understanding sales contracts, proprietary leases, By-Laws, Offering-Plans, and what not, this dictionary helps to makes sense of it all with their straight and to the point definitions.'

Barron's has always been a leader in diseminating usefull knowledge.
Very good book with plenty of drawings and pics.
Highly recommend to anyone looking to buy a this first
This small-format book is an excellent resource for anyone in the real estate industry. MLOs, real estate agents, settlement attorneys and assistants, title company people.........all will eventually refer to this book.
Excellent book and must have for any library.
I bought it used, but it was in new condition. It is a very complete book of real estate terms. It is small enough to carry with you, but complete enough to be very useful.
I used this dictionary as a reference to study for a Real Estate Technician civil service test. As I was in the process of selling my house to move into something smaller, I had already learned a lot about selling real estate. This dictionary was a great help, and will certainly be helpful if i get a position as Real Estate Technician.
This is exactly what I need, a small dictionary with everything that I need to know about real estate. Barron knows real estate.
