Building upon their wildly successful Property Brothers real estate program on HGTV, the Scott brothers offer a complete resource for the home buyer or seller who’s looking to nail the sweet deal. Beyond outlining when to sell or buy, the book also includes helpful room-by-room tips and guides for optimal presentation. A few basic changes to the bathroom alone can, according to the authors, elevate the value of a home: installing a double sink instead of single one, using of cabinetry creatively, and optimizing the position of mirrors. The book moves from room to room, highlighting basic design elements and staging that will add visual appeal and elevate potential asking prices. For current and future homeowners looking to capitalize on their square footage, this is a comprehensive and detailed guide. (Apr.)
