Every page is appalling. How this got published is beyond me.
Again the title is "ESSENTIALS of Real Estate Economics". For more about the organization and layout of the book please also see the informative review written here by Risfan Munir. You'll also find Amazon offers "Look Inside" for a helpful preview.
I've been interested in my local state's real estate markets for decades beginning my study thirty years back. It's now also my career. From that perspective, I find the latest edition of this book (sixth edition, 2010-2011) a well written overview of the primary factors that govern Real Estate Markets. I admit before the book arrived, I was online reading as much as was available through excerpts. Almost immediately I realized this is the first book written on economics that held my interest to such a degree and for that: Hats off to the Authors. While it devotes the entire first part of the book to very elementary explanations of capitalism and driving economic factors, there are probably many students and readers requiring this foundation. Its well organized and the writing style flows smoothly. Each Part and Chapter offers just enough specific information to keep a reader interested and learning. The "Case and Point" add-ins are current, topical and informative fun reading also. They are however USA topical only, probably useless to a reader in another country.
Another great attribute separating this particular book from others on the subject are chapters devoted to regional and community development analysis, growth patterns, and land use patterns. Few Economics texts are organized in such a comprehensive manner as this; Examination of factors which impact past present and future trends; from global economic capitalism and monetary systems to the local community growth pattern examinations. After reading this, I feel any other interested reader can glean either a well-rounded over view of each major aspect of global capitalist economy that intersects Real Estate economy, or a more in depth understanding of any of the particular aspects involved.
If you're an investor, planner, public servant, real estate broker, related real estate industry service provider and business owner or even an information junkie looking to garner an in depth understanding of the items determining Real Estate markets, I recommend this read. For average readers who haven't already earned an M.B.A. or graduate level degree in economics, this book provides a well-organized, excellent overview of the subject. Moreover if you're an active citizen involved in political processes governing your local land use laws, it's a great idea for you to do your homework obtaining background knowledge prior to taking a stance for or against changes in your region.
It does not include some new charts but the basic information is still there.
