RISMEDIA, Jan. 15, 2007-Buying and selling real estate can be a tricky and trying endeavor for both consumers and real estate agents. I've Heard it All and So Should You: Confessions of a Real Estate Columnist by Edith Lank (Dearborn Real Estate Education, 2006) recently launched to help all parties better understand one another and to help ensure a positive real estate experience.
Lank's award-winning nationally syndicated real estate column by Creators Syndicate (Los Angeles Times Syndicate and Tribune Media Services) appears in more than 100 newspapers and Web sites across the country.
I've Heard it All and So Should You…provides basic real estate information that real buyers and sellers have asked Lank throughout the years, providing useful information to consumers and helpful insight for agents-as well as plenty of laughs. The engaging stories reveal the true depths of what real estate buyers and sellers do, and more surprisingly, do not know.
Lank answers her readers' questions with humor and patience, providing a wealth of knowledge in bite-sized, digestible answers. Following are a few examples of readers' questions:
"…please send all information on how to sell our home without using a "realator." I think you call it being a FSOB…"
"I would appreciate any information on Fanny Mae. Also if she has any books out…"
"Would adding extra to our mortgage payment save us money in the long run? If so, should we pay extra on principal, interest or escrow?"
Lank's ninth book on real estate covers topics from the relatively simple (the role of agents, the rules of real estate law and the mechanics of buying and selling) to the more complex (mortgages, how to buy, sell, and manage investment properties and taxes).
I've Heard it All and So Should You: Confessions of a Real Estate Columnist (Dearborn Real Estate Education, October, 2006; Soft cover; 5 1/4×7 3/4; 250 pages; ISBN: 1-4195-9326-9) is $22.39 and available in bookstores and at http://www.dearbornRE.com, 1-800-621-9621.
