Was haben Mode, Autos, Einrichtung und Immobilien gemeinsam? Keiner verkauft seinen Gebrauchtwagen ungewaschen. Jeder Autoverkäufer weiß, dass sein Auto dann bessere Chancen auf dem Gebrauchtwagenmarkt hat. Jedes Einrichtungs- bzw. Möbelhaus gestaltet schöne Musterzimmer, um die Kunden damit zu inspirieren. Ansprechend und gekonnt dekorierte Schaufenster wecken Sehnsüchte nach geschmackvollem Wohnen oder gutem Aussehen. Sollte das nicht bei einer Immobilie genauso sein? Wieso müssen Immobiliensuchende - im Fall von unbewohnten Immobilien - kahle, unrenovierte und schlecht beleuchtete Räume oder - im Fall von noch bewohnten Immobilien - zugestellte Flure, hochgeklappte Toiletten-Deckel und die "Vorlieben" der Vorbesitzer erleben? Vor dem Hintergrund, welcher Aufwand in anderen Lebensbereichen betrieben wird, um Konsumenten in Kaufstimmung zu bringen, treten die Autorinnen als Home Staging Profis dafür ein, dass Kaufinteressenten von Immobilien ebenfalls den bestmöglichen ersten Eindruck erhalten und "verzaubert" werden. Klingt auch für Sie schlüssig? Dann ist dies das richtige Buch für Sie! Sie werden zahlreiche praktische Tipps und Anregungen finden, die Sie selbst umsetzen können. Vielleicht merken Sie schon beim Lesen, wie viel Spaß es Ihnen machen würde, Ihr jetziges Zuhause so zu verwandeln, damit es möglichst viele Kaufinteressenten begeistert.

Real estate marketing is certainly not a discipline that is taught at universities or is included in the curriculum of marketing-oriented professional training. For this very reason this book aims to provide information on how to approach such tasks in order to find success in real estate marketing. Branding Property. Approaches to Real Estate Marketing presents examples to illustrate the type of processes and methods applied, how a new brand is brought to life, and how skilled implementation can reach the specified target group. At the core of the interdisciplinary approach is the visualization of the future residents of the property that is being marketed - including their mannerisms, habits, wishes, and needs. This way, real estate marketing already plays a role at an early stage by influencing the architecture, the mix of offers and the price level of the future offer. The book is supplemented by essays of visionary specialists. The discussed topics range from living in the future via the potentials of cyberspace and digital transformation up to marketing and brand philosophy.

FOR SALE: From the creator of the viral blog sensation TerribleRealEstateAgentPhotos.com, a book of the most baffling property photographs ever taken. With over 100 previously unpublished photos, early viewing is STRONGLY recommended. The mantra 'location, location, location' often concerns buying a house, but some estate agents would do well to apply it to their photography. Should one, for instance, locate the camera in front of a fossilised garden chair? An overflowing ash tray? An elderly relative hustling out of shot? Has thought been spared for the location of that dirty underwear? Those psychedelic curtains? Out of touch with realty, less Rankin and more plain rank, some of the worst offenders should perhaps consider relocating to another industry. Luckily for us, they haven't yet. The mystifying property photographs gathered here are an endless source of confusion, confusion, confusion, frustration, frustration, frustration and, perversely, satisfaction, satisfaction, satisfaction. Reactions to TerribleRealEstateAgentPhotos.com: ‘One of the funniest things on the web’ – Guardian ‘Hilarious’ – Tom Standage, Economist ‘Brilliant’ – Graham Linehan ‘Astonishing’ – Daily Mail ‘Hilarious’ – Time Out ‘Marvellous’ – Independent ‘Amazing’ – Der Spiegel

Furthermore the authors describe the use of these techniques and how they are designed to achieve high-availability, flexibility, and scalability of data and applications. Additional attention is given to network backup and the management of storage networks. Written by leading experts in the field, this book on storage area networks is updated and fully revised.

Concise History of Islam
Author: Muzaffar Husain Syed, Syed Saud Akhtar, B D Usmani
Publisher: Vij Books India Pvt Ltd
In World History, History of Islam is a glorious chapter. In fact, Muslim History involves the history of the Islamic faith as a religion and as a social institution. Through various periods, Islam made many a long stride and its influence spread far-off over the globe. Apart from religion, Muslims made considerable contribution in areas, like philosophy, literature, arts, law, economy, science, medicine and commerce etc. At the academic level, Muslim philosophers, educationists and experts of Islamic law have made great contributions. The evolution of Islam has impacted the political, economic and military history of an enormous geographical region. A century after the demise of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) the, Islamic empire extended from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to Central Asia in the east. Islamic civilization gave rise to many centers of culture and science and produced notable philosophers, scientists, astronomers, mathematicians, doctors and nurses, during the Golden Age of Islam. In today's world, Islam is one of the major religions and perhaps there is hardly any corner of the world, where Muslims are not found. History of Islam is a vast subject. Here it is in a concise form. This modest work, a comprehensive book in one cover, is an effort in the direction of recording the history of Islam in nutshell, authentically. This excellent book is an asset for all scholars and academics in all spheres of learning.
This book provides an insightful view of major issues in the economics of corporate governance (CG) and mergers. It presents a systematic update on the developments in the two fields during the last decade, as well as highlighting the neglected topics in CG research, such as the role of boards, CG and public interest and the relation of CG to mergers. Two important conclusions can be drawn from this book: the first is that corporate governance systems that better align shareholders and managers interests lead to better corporate performance; second, there is an important relationship between CG structures and the quality of firm decision-making, one of the most important being the decision to merge or take over another firm. Focusing on some of the often-neglected aspects of corporate governance such as non-profit organizations and public interest, as well as mergers and acquisitions from a CG perspective, this book will be a valuable resource for both academics and postgraduate students of finance, business and economics.
