Have you wished there was one simple guide that helps you through the process of buying a home and explains everything from the key players in the housing business to interior design choices and architectural styles? Dream Home is that guide. It provides homebuyers with insightful commentary on the American housing industry and turns readers into more informed real estate consumers.
