Canadians have always had a love affair with real estate, but in the aftermath of September the 11th, the affair has turned into an obsession. Multiple offers, competing bids, rising demand and soaring prices are all evidence that the market has entered a new phase that few, if any predicted. In his important new book, best-selling author and financial guru Garth Turner provides buyers and sellers with important insights into this vibrant market, that's being fuelled by cheap money, rising investor confidence and a surprising economic recovery. How long will the boom last, and could it turn into a bubble, with disastrous consequences? What strategies should buyers use to protect themselves from overpaying in a hot market? How should you borrow to take advantage of today's interest rates and yet not be exposed to future changes? The Little Book of Real Estate Wisdom gives readers the classic rules of successful real estate buying and investing, as well as the additional tools and strategies that Canadians need to know in the current, volatile environment. Written in his trademark direct, plain-speaking style, this is a book that entertains, motivates and inspires while it educates. As always with Turner, reading at its most profitable.
