Summary

Essential Real Estate Terms You Should Know

Every industry has its own jargon, and real estate is no different. From adjustable rate mortgages to title insurance to amortization, it can all seem like a confusing word salad for those new to the business. But don’t worry - this book compiles a list of over 140 most common terms you’re likely to encounter.

Every real estate term is explained in detail, with clear and concise article style description and practical examples.

This real estate glossary is a handy reference for:

  • Real estate agents
  • First time home buyers
  • Home buyers
  • Real estate investors
  • Home sellers 

This extensive dictionary covers all areas of the real estate market. It is a great starting point for beginners, a valuable resource for investors, as well as a fundamental point of reference for any questions you may have about real estate.

Terms covered in this alphabetical dictionary address topics like:

  • Income properties
  • Rental properties
  • Real estate exam
  • Real estate laws
  • Real estate jobs
  • Real estate financing
  • Home flipping
  • Property management
  • Commercial real estate 

Having a basic understanding of important real estate concepts before you start the home buying process will give you peace of mind now and could save you a fortune in the future. For those new to home buying and selling, real estate lingo can add layers of confusion to an already convoluted process.

Taking time to understand the vocabulary can help you as a buyer or seller and educate on the process, eliminating confusion, and get better prepared for a swift and smooth transaction.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

I enjoyed this book

I enjoyed this book because although I've owned a few rental properties for several years, it was helpful to have him reinforce the things I've been doing and it was also helpful to learn a few things that I didn't know before and it was also an inspirational read. I highly recommend this book to all beginners.

Can a seller accept a second offer?

Only after the first contract is clearly over can the seller accept the second offer. As a rule of thumb in real estate however, you should remember that the seller is always in control. It's their property to keep or sell and they can virtually accept or reject offers at will.

Very Marvelous Content

The same way as you would sell a house to a regular buyer. However, you must disclose on the contract that you are a licensed Realtor. Buying a home as a Realtor isnt much different then a traditional sale. Just make sure you announce that your an agent to the Listing agent and that the home is for yourself.

This course demystifies real estate. I have been interested in real estate for a long time but did not know where or how to start. This audiobook so far has provided me with the tools to start any project.

Great Bang For Your Buck!

Information received surpassed my expectations. The willingness of the Instructor to share so much valuable information is awesome. As a beginner, I've learned more than what I've learned from other investors in the industry. They say they want to share information but the cost does not meet the expectations of the information received. He has given me the encouragement I need to move forward with my dream. I can't thank him enough.

With no problems :)

Herold is a successful entrepreneur & mediator and Bahl was a great teacher as well. Bahl Spoke very well to be able to move at 1.5x with no problems. A lot of repetitive information, but that is useful for learning. Covered all scopes of real estate investing from short term rental to buying an apartment complex with multiple investors.

Best course on Audible

This is the best course I ever bought on Audible, it opens to me the door of real estate investment and investment analysis, starting from this course, through continued learning and applying the calculations in real-life examples and develop intuitions, I find myself much more confident when looking at various options and immune from bogus return projections and sales from investment providers, and able to see clearly if certain market is suitable to cashflow investors. I'm writing this review few days after I bought and went through (almost completely, with all that I'm interested in went through) this course, and as time goes by, it becomes more and more clear how important lessons this course gave me, I fully recommend this course to anyone who is interested in real estate investment and who would like to have clear view about investment return.

Well organized

I am full time real estate investor/flipper, taking this audio book for further education. The course structure is very well organized, easy to follow, theory with practice. Highly recommended. It's critical to quickly identify if a deal is good or bad, how to measure the return accurately. This audio book is very helpful. Every section followed by a demo will definitely help students digest the theory. I took 3 courses from instructor Herold which are Personal Finance Terms, The Money Deception , and 99 Financial Terms. This single course is the best of the similar staff. Highly recommended

I am glad to find this

I totally recommend this audio book for anyone that wishes to learn about real estate investments, I am an architect in process of achieving a masters degree in real estate developments so i know what i am talking about.... This Course has Income properties,Rental properties, Real estate exam, Real estate laws, Real estate jobs, Real estate financing, Home flipping, Property management, Commercial real estate much more, Herold is a successful entrepreneur that's giving away a masters degree course almost for free (In only for $19.95). I have read as well as listened a respectable amount of books, taken courses and university degree classes on the subject. I am glad to find a course that goes right into the subject instead of wasting your time with motivational stuff that's not worth your money.
