Publisher's Summary

Essential Real Estate Terms You Should Know

Every industry has its own jargon, and real estate is no different. From adjustable rate mortgages to title insurance to amortization, it can all seem like a confusing word salad for those new to the business. But don’t worry - this book compiles a list of over 140 most common terms you’re likely to encounter.

Every real estate term is explained in detail, with clear and concise article style description and practical examples.

This real estate glossary is a handy reference for:

  • Real estate agents
  • First time home buyers
  • Home buyers
  • Real estate investors
  • Home sellers 

This extensive dictionary covers all areas of the real estate market. It is a great starting point for beginners, a valuable resource for investors, as well as a fundamental point of reference for any questions you may have about real estate.

Terms covered in this alphabetical dictionary address topics like:

  • Income properties
  • Rental properties
  • Real estate exam
  • Real estate laws
  • Real estate jobs
  • Real estate financing
  • Home flipping
  • Property management
  • Commercial real estate 

Having a basic understanding of important real estate concepts before you start the home buying process will give you peace of mind now and could save you a fortune in the future. For those new to home buying and selling, real estate lingo can add layers of confusion to an already convoluted process.

Taking time to understand the vocabulary can help you as a buyer or seller and educate on the process, eliminating confusion, and get better prepared for a swift and smooth transaction.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

WOW!

I absolutely LOVE this Audio Book. It's the only course I've found that thoroughly covers the terms in detail and gives you some pro-level investment models. I've done investment modeling for several years and Herold's models make mine look like a pinto to his ferraris--they are BEAST! Excellent progression from beginner level content to very advanced concepts. Highly highly recommended!

Essential Real Estate Terms

Good, general introductory course that takes you through the entire process. This simplified visual course is a nice over view of the Real Estate Terms for a first time home buyer. It is also a nice refresher for anyone who is already familiar with the home buying process.

Great knowledge

Great knowledge, actual tangible takeaways and very diverse with great examples. He's not afraid to dumb it down for people like me (small-time investors) Great narration, as usual from Turner. This is the 3rd of his books I have read, the best of the 3 in my opinion.

I enjoyed this book

I enjoyed this book because although I've owned a few rental properties for several years, it was helpful to have him reinforce the things I've been doing and it was also helpful to learn a few things that I didn't know before and it was also an inspirational read. I highly recommend this book to all beginners.

Can a seller accept a second offer?

Only after the first contract is clearly over can the seller accept the second offer. As a rule of thumb in real estate however, you should remember that the seller is always in control. It's their property to keep or sell and they can virtually accept or reject offers at will.

Very Marvelous Content

The same way as you would sell a house to a regular buyer. However, you must disclose on the contract that you are a licensed Realtor. Buying a home as a Realtor isnt much different then a traditional sale. Just make sure you announce that your an agent to the Listing agent and that the home is for yourself.

Great Bang For Your Buck!

Information received surpassed my expectations. The willingness of the Instructor to share so much valuable information is awesome. As a beginner, I've learned more than what I've learned from other investors in the industry. They say they want to share information but the cost does not meet the expectations of the information received. He has given me the encouragement I need to move forward with my dream. I can't thank him enough.
