Real Estate Expert Brendon DeSimone Debuts First Book

As the first of its kind, Next Generation Real Estate documents industry insider DeSimone's twelve years of experience and provides a road map to navigating the new world of real estate.

NEW YORK, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, nationally recognized real estate expert Brendon DeSimone announces the debut of his first book, Next Generation Real Estate: New Rules for Smarter Home Buying & Faster Selling (Changing Lives Press, $17.38), available now.   

Over the last ten years, we've seen an extremely volatile housing market, a steady stream of distressed properties, the growing use of technology, a new first-time buyer and an increase in hedge fund and all cash buyers. Technologically, economically, behaviorally, and culturally the world is more dynamic than ever. The result is a new portrait of the American Dream and a new world of real estate; one that is much more eclectic, complex and in need of new ground rules.

DeSimone introduces Next Generation Real Estate as a go-to guide for consumers. Highlighting new trends and offering insider tips for any part of the country, DeSimone breaks down barriers and levels the playing field for Millennial, Gen X and Baby Boomer buyers and sellers today.

"I've spent the past few years following the changes in the real estate market and the trends that have transformed the way people buy and sell homes today," said DeSimone, "With that knowledge and my feet-on-the-street experience, I am excited to bring this how-to guide to the market, helping consumers gain the basic knowledge needed to buy smarter and sell faster."

DeSimone breaks down several aspects and trends of today's market and features valuable interviews with industry insiders Barbara Corcoran, Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff, and Curbed Founder Lockhard Steele. From how faster moving markets can hurt a seller's bottom line and how technology has forever changed the buying experience, to the three major implications that govern any transaction, Next Generation Real Estate features real-life advice to get ahead.

"DeSimone's taking the strengths of each generation (yes, even my Baby Boomer parents) and cobbling together a genius real estate language for the ages (OK, it also helps that he knows the world of real estate like the back of his hand)," says Realtor Magazine's Meg White.

Giving readers an insider's perspective, Next Generation Real Estate offers concrete guidance, unique expertise and out-of-the-box tips for traversing today's rocky real estate market.
