The unremitting march of progress continues to drive changes in nearly all the manifold disciplines that are covered by the umbrella term of real estate. Naturally, specialist publications must also take these into account. It therefore goes without saying that, in collaboration with the editorial department of the Immobilien Zeitung, Alec Evans, the author of the Real Estate Dictionary, is pressing ahead continuously with its development, even after the publication of this fourth edition. Many new entries have been included in the dictionary since the publication of the third edition in summer 2007. A large number of them have resulted from suggestions by our readers, for which we are particularly grateful, as always.
A large number of entries have also been revised and, as part of the process, some less pertinent entries have been removed.
The Real Estate Dictionary includes the whole range (in the widest sense) of real estate disciplines. The total of around 43,000 entries covers essential vocabulary for real estate practitioners from the fields of project development, valuation and appraisal, town and country planning, law, taxation, finance and accounting, as well as the associated fields of architecture and construction, investment, business management, marketing, economics and retailing, even stretching as far as technical, trade and craft matters.
