Building upon their wildly successful Property Brothers real estate program on HGTV, the Scott brothers offer a complete resource for the home buyer or seller who’s looking to nail the sweet deal. Beyond outlining when to sell or buy, the book also includes helpful room-by-room tips and guides for optimal presentation. A few basic changes to the bathroom alone can, according to the authors, elevate the value of a home: installing a double sink instead of single one, using of cabinetry creatively, and optimizing the position of mirrors. The book moves from room to room, highlighting basic design elements and staging that will add visual appeal and elevate potential asking prices. For current and future homeowners looking to capitalize on their square footage, this is a comprehensive and detailed guide. (Apr.)

This book is going to save me a lot of anguish before I begin to buy a home. There is a lot of work that you need to do before you even look at the houses. This has tips for researching crime statistics and other issues like what kinds of issue plague other houses and the suggestion of making a bigger contingency in your renovation budget. The only thing I wish is that my nook color could read without crashing every few pages.

I love these guys. They are fun on television and this book is a huge help for us do it yourselfers.

A must have for any home. This book gives you tips on how to decide if you should sell your home or if you should just renovate your home. It also gives you a chart of when the best time to buy things such as electronics and flooring. There is so much more that I could mention but I wouldn't be able to fit it within the character allotment. You don't have to be a fan of the show to love this book but it doesn't hurt.
