The Property Diaries is the emotional, as well as financial, journey that Maggie takes over the next 18 months. Readers of this book will learn that it is possible for a single woman to get a deposit together, find a bank to lend her the money for a mortgage and find the perfect piece of real estate. Along the way Maggie learns how to deal with the good and bad sides of househunting, the realities of actually buying a house and the art of negotiating with financial institutions and real estate agents of all moral calibres. Will Maggie ever buy her dream home ...and will she find her dream man, too?
