This book is part of an exam preparation program for the California Real Estate Brokers Exam. It is an excellent source for that purpose but it is also an excellent source of information regarding the general topic of real estate economics. The book provides a brief introduction to economic principles and concepts for those who have a limited background in economic studies. This is helpful, but the real value of the book is how it dives into the key areas of economic principles and how they apply to the real estate market and profession. The book is geared towards the California market, but most of the principles and concepts are universal (at least within the United States economy and real estate market). I highly recommend this book to anyone with a casual or professional interest in real estate economics.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
