FSBO (For Sale by Owner??)

House of Sand and Fog By Andre Dubus III
Thinking of FSBO (For Sale by Owner) ? Read this book, then decide if you want to ‘go it alone’ or have your REALTOR® help you!
(Of course, after you finish this book, you may decide to just ‘stay put’ !)

"Three fragile yet determined people become entangled in an escalating crisis over the same small house. Combining unadorned realism with profound empathy, House of Sand and Fog is a devastating exploration of the American Dream gone awry".
Oprah's Book Club info:
Author Andre Dubus III on the Conception of this Book "I visited [the Bay Area of San Francisco] for about two months and something lingered, and that was the fog down near the shore. The fog and the sand and the water, and the bright colors of San Francisco.""I had read in the Boston Globe about a woman who was kicked out of her house for failure to pay back taxes... And for years I had wanted to write about the father of a friend of mine in college who was a colonel in the Shah's Air Force who lived in the country and was trying to get back on his feet financially. And I imagined what would happen if he bought this house this woman was evicted from."
Oprah’s Quote: “ I couldn't have even imagined that ending—down to the last quote!— Andre, I've never read a book like this! Thank you very much. Oh my goodness!”

Thanks for the informative article. I consider the topic of real estate to be really interesting and up to date. Today there are so many opportunities for those who are interested in real estate and also for those who prefer to sell or to buy property For Sale By Owner. One of the new tools is Climate Watch service which allows homebuyers to check what the climate is like in another town or city all year round before they move there.
