OrangeReviewStarYou've seen them on HGTV on programs such as Property Brothers, performing fabulous transformations on rundown homes to the delight of picky clients. In their first book, the Scott brothers reveal what you don't see in the shows. The decision-making process is dissected—what factors to consider when selling or buying a house. Solid advice on how to choose among those expensive selections is the highlight of this title. There are recommendations to make a home more sellable, perform fixes yourself, or call in the experts. Also included are lists of simple projects for homeowners and tips on style. Covering methodology more than DIY, it serves as a great foundation to make those costly real-estate decisions and supports homeowners in their pursuit of home improvement.
VERDICT An excellent choice for potential home buyers, this essential guide informs readers on how to sell, buy, and potentially remodel any residence. A must read. [See "Editors' Spring Picks," LJ 2/15/16, p. 33.]
