The Property Diaries is a fun and informative guide for women who want to get their well-heeled feet on the property ladder. Packed with practical information about saving for a deposit, applying for a bank loan and researching properties, the book follows real estate rookie Maggie Rose as she finds her dream home ? and possibly her dream man as well!
