Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This concise, single-source guide for real estate players includes a tersely worded but well-illustrated glossary of terms (making up half the book) and various payment and amortization tables. Home buyers and sellers, real estate investors, and individuals considering a real estate career are well served by this overview. Though not elaborate in detail, the text is a convenient initial reference. Revised to include the considerable changes brought about by the 1986 tax law, it is a valuable resource for all libraries. Joseph Barth, USMA Lib., West Point, N.Y.
Booknews
Nearly half of this handbook is devoted to a glossary of real estate terms that includes numerous line drawings of architectural structures and charts of mathematical formulas and economic procedures. An extensive section of tables provides information that can be used to construct monthly mortgage payment and amortization schedules for a variety of interest rates and terms, analyze the early years of a graduated payment mortgage, compute depreciation schedules under current tax law, and determine the effects of discount points.
