I dreaded selling with a real estate agent but this book clearly explained how the industry works and the keys to selling houses. By following the advice in this book, I successfully interviewed several agents and picked one who did an outstanding job getting me a high price and a quick closing. Book is filled with lots of great tips for getting a home ready to sell. I didn't have the time to sell myself but for those who do, this book shows the tricks of the trade

As an investment professional and self-confessed do-it-yourselfer, I am a great fan of Eric Tyson's "Personal Finance for Dummies" and "Mutual Funds for Dummies" which empower people to manage their own finances better. It was therefore very disappointing for me to read this book and "Home Buying for Dummies", only to find that the authors (maybe through Ray Brown's influence)pound away relentlessly at the notion that the reader REALLY should hire a real estate agent rather than doing it themself. The authors clearly have a much higher opinion of real estate brokers and agents than I do.
Anyone looking for a reference on how to figure out the finances of buying and selling homes and how to effectively choose and use a real estate agent will likely find these books useful.
Unfortunately, the "do-it-yourself" crowd needs to look elsewhere or hope for a major revision.
