It seems like this book was written to be a giveaway for real estate agents. It has some good ideas, but is deeply flawed because of its strong bias towards maintaining the status quo for real estate agents within the conventional real estate market.

The author blatantly promotes the conventional costly and inefficient methods that are common to real estate transactions, and provides only lip-service for more effective and cost-efficient alternatives. If you sell a $300,000 house in the U.S., it will cost you $18,000-21,000 (6-7%) in commissions alone. Doesn't that cost seem a bit much for just transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer? The real estate establishment perpetuates the myth that the seller pays the agents, but in fact the seller pays the agents out of funds he receives from the buyer, so it is the buyer that is paying through a jacked up price do the house. Then, strangely, in most real estate systems, the listing agent and the buyer's agent both represent the seller. Isn't this system sort of odd?

Instead of offering a new, more efficient way, the author encourages the reader to stick to the status quo and sink lots of money into this inefficient system, perpetuating the myth that real estate transactions need to be complicated, costly, and high-anxiety.

A better way for the buyer --

1. Find houses that you like on your own -- the internet makes it easy.

2. When you set up the showings, tell the listing agent that you will not be bringing a buyer's agent and instead will be represented by an attorney, but that you expect a 3% reduced commission to recognize that there is not buyer's agent. Make sure the agent and his/her broker agree to this arrangement before you finalize a showing. (If you don't do this, the listing agent and broker will try to rake the entire 6.0%. I'm not kidding.)

4. If you decide to make an offer, have your real estate attorney write-up the offer.

A real estate attorney should cost about $800-1200 instead of $9,000 for the entire transaction including offer, negotiation, document review, and closing meeting. More importantly, the attorney will represent you and only you.

Using this method, your transaction costs for the same $300,000 house will be reduced from $18,000 to $10,000 -- still too expensive for the minimal value provided, but much better than the conventional approach perpetuated by this book. Because you reduced the sellers costs by 3%, and you can negotiate a 3% reduction in the price.

This book offered very little to a "well informed" person. I was very disappointed and felt I wasted by $22. buying it. Only good if you no nothing about real estate.

New York(CBS) Lots of money is at stake when homes are bought and sold. Most of the time, homes are people's biggest assets. Real estate broker Mark Nash has written several books on this, his area of expertise.

The latest is a complete guide to selling and purchasing called, appropriately enough, "1001 Tips for Buying and Selling a Home." He dropped by The Early Show Friday to talk about it.

Nash told co-anchor Rene Syler that members of consumer focus groups say they don't go through the process often enough to really understand it, though, they add, they finally do understand the process by the time their transactions close.

But consumers want to be proactive, rather than reactive, in purchases and sales of large assets.

Nash says he designed the book to be a true "how-to," with more than 1,001 numbered tips with related bullet points. Readers, Nash asserts, can pick it up and put it down and independently grasp each tip, without having to read a copy-heavy 500-page book and sift out what's applicable.

You never know which part or parts of the process will cause concern, Nash points out. It could be the beginning, with search for a home, mortgage options, negotiating a contract, or getting a home ready to sell. It could also be near the conclusion, such as how to get organized to move. Or it could be any point in between.

"1001 Tips" is designed to be with the reader from their first thought of buying or selling to the day of closing or escrow, Nash notes.

This book was disappointing. If you were in a book store you could have flipped through the pages and read over the book. It just gives paragraphs from 1 to 1001 ideas. The book is not that interesting.

I had a house. I had been through the buying process once already - did I really need this book? Yes, yes, definitely yes. This book highlighted 1) everything I had forgotten about the process of buying a home, 2) everything I didn't know the first time about buying a home, and 3) everything I needed to know about selling my most valuable asset. I was flabbergasted by the amount of information in this book and the excellent way in which it is organized. It guides you through the entire process, but makes it easy to jump to the issue that is most troubling at the moment. It provides information from the basics: Tip #227 - "Take your time. Do not let anyone rush you" to the more complex: Tip #556 Compare the benefits of working with a mortgage broker or mortgage banker". I did not even know there was a difference! This book is a font of information in an easy to read format - I do not know how I survived without it the first time around. I can only chalk it up to luck considering how much I did not know before I read this book. I recommend it to all my friends.

The author, Mark Nash recently wrote an article about Man Caves - personal dedicated space for a guy in his home. The article said Mr. Nash surveyed 900 real estate agents about housing trends. I figure anyone who does that kind of research knows how to buy and sell houses. 1001 Tips has lots of definitions and is easy to skim for tips that apply to you. I like the way Mr. Nash provides clear advice on dealing with real estate agents, especially your rights and what to expect - the tips sound like Mr. Nash is giving up professional secrets. The book's purpose is to answer everyday questions, which he does well and he provides resources to get more detail, if needed. If you only buy one real estate book, this is it.
