The ultimate property guru, TV's House Doctor Ann Maurice, has written a comprehensive guide to all the ins and outs, pitfalls and opportunities of the housing market -- from tips how to improve the appeal of your home, to the nitty gritty of mortgages and conveyancing. We invest so much in property -- both financially and emotionally -- and the process of buying and selling is littered with complicated jargon, mind-boggling decisions, and people trying to make money out of you and your anxiety. This book demystifies the property market and explains exactly what it is that solicitors and estate agents do for their money, so that you are empowered to lead the transaction. It will show you what to look for in a property, how to see your house as both an investment and a home, and how to ensure you get the best deal with the least amount of hassle. contents include:Selling a house -- the value of your home -- improving the appeal of your home -- receiving an offerBuying a home -- researching where to live -- successful home hunting -- making an offer -- mortgages and conveyancingMoving HouseBuying to let -- financial implications -- tenancy agreements

As Channel 5's House Doctor, Ann Maurice has gained a massive cult following for her ability to transform unsaleable homes into hot properties, and has single-handedly introduced 'home staging' to an eager British public. However, she began her working life selling real estate in the San Francisco area for 13 years. She is therefore eminently qualified to provide the kind of hard-headed, insider knowledge needed to successfully navigate the property market.Review:
"Maurice's book will not only take the stress out of the whole moving process, it will help save money as well. Well-organised and clearly laid out, with tip boxes and quick checks, it's full of sensible advice. Invaluable for anyone buying, selling or moving house." - Sue Baker, Publishing News
