    An insider reveals how buyers and sellers can get the best price possible—by understanding how the housing market really works. 
     
    The process of buying or selling a home elicits a lot of emotions, from excitement to anxiety. Often, this can blind us to the practical realities of how the housing market works—especially since most people only enter the real estate world once a decade or less. Top residential real estate agent Tracy McLaughlin is here to change our understanding of the home sale process. Whether you’re buying your first home or an experienced seller, this book is packed with essential advice. 
     
    In nearly all real estate sales, buyers and sellers leave behind thousands—or even hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars—on the table. As shocking as this is, it continually happens because one simple decision, among the countless made during the entire process, can greatly impact the outcome of the transaction. By presenting an inside view on sales based on years of experience, McLaughlin provides a guide for maximizing the value of the sale and purchase of homes—including detailed advice as well as tips on finding the right real estate agent.

    I like to think of the Archaeologist from a more advanced society who would dig up this album hundreds of years from now, listen to it, and wonder why we needed a comedian like Barry Crimmins in the early days of the millennium. What would be the purpose of a person standing on a stage getting big laughs stating obvious facts that were already accepted by even the youngest of children in his modern society? The only society that doesn’t need a Barry Crimmins would already have hundreds of millions of Barry Crimmins.

    Dilbert returns ready to aim low with new employee Foodie with a Huge Forehead in comic strips guaranteed to suck the productivity out of your workday. 
     
    Inside this collection, Dilbert and his team “flail around in futility” while the corporate bosses “forget what it’s like to be one of the little people.” From CEO Dogbert’s speculative use of the company jet for personal vacationing to the flawed planning of a new electrically compromised data center, Dilbert exemplifies the randomness and annoyances associated with corporate cubicle culture.
