Product Description

This Understanding Modern Real Estate Transactions treatise explains clearly and succinctly the myriad issues that arise and require discussion in advanced real estate courses. The author focuses on the typical chronology of a residential real estate transaction, from the date the seller decides to sell the real estate by listing it with a broker, to the date the transaction is completed and the deed of sale is recorded in the applicable recorder’s office. Students are thus easily able to access any issue that would confront the real estate student or practitioner.

Although the initial focus is on a residential real estate transaction, the author also covers, when warranted, issues equally applicable to commercial real estate transactions. Understanding Modern Real Estate Transactions also provides case analysis, focusing on the cases that appear in the most prominent and widely used texts for modern real estate. Numerous simple hypotheticals throughout the text explain the more complicated theories and rules.

Loaded with practical tips from a noted expert in real estate transactions, this new publication will be beneficial for the neophyte and expert alike, providing insight on the issues likely to appear on exams from the professor’s perspective. It is a must-read for anyone interested in learning about real estate for the first time or anyone preparing for an exam in an advanced real estate course, including the bar exam.
