Book Description

4 May 2004

The ultimate property guru, TV’s House Doctor Ann Maurice, has written a comprehensive guide to all the ins and outs, pitfalls and opportunities of the housing market – from tips how to improve the appeal of your home, to the nitty gritty of mortgages and conveyancing.

We invest so much in property – both financially and emotionally – and the process of buying and selling is littered with complicated jargon, mind-boggling decisions, and people trying to make money out of you and your anxiety.

This book demystifies the property market and explains exactly what it is that solicitors and estate agents do for their money, so that you are empowered to lead the transaction. It will show you what to look for in a property, how to see your house as both an investment and a home, and how to ensure you get the best deal with the least amount of hassle.

contents include:

Selling a house
– the value of your home
– improving the appeal of your home
– receiving an offer

Buying a home
– researching where to live
– successful home hunting
– making an offer
– mortgages and conveyancing

Moving House

Buying to let
– financial implications
– tenancy agreements

Product Description


“Maurice’s book will not only take the stress out of the whole moving process, it will help save money as well. Well-organised and clearly laid out, with tip boxes and quick checks, it’s full of sensible advice. Invaluable for anyone buying, selling or moving house.”
- Sue Baker, Publishing News

About the Author

As Channel 5's House Doctor, Ann Maurice has gained a massive cult following for her ability to transform unsaleable homes into hot properties, and has single-handedly introduced 'home staging' to an eager British public. However, she began her working life selling real estate in the San Francisco area for 13 years. She is therefore eminently qualified to provide the kind of hard-headed, insider knowledge needed to successfully navigate the property market.

4.0 out of 5 stars a little dated but useful 3 Mar 2011
I bought this to remind myself of the various pitfalls and stages of selling and buying and all the bits in between. Good for reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD BASIC PROPERTY GUIDE 4 Jun 2010
By M. Roy
The book was purchased as a practical guide (which it turned out met that criteria)to consider the options and costs for purchasing and selling our home. The selling costs may not be current, but are a good guide on which to consider selling our home.
The book covers all aspects of selling and renting out a property and is a good guide book for all.
Many good tips provided.
