    I am a big fan of Property Brothers and this was a fun book with enough of their signature humor to be a fun read, but it suffers from style over substance. The advice while good as far as it goes, seems vague most of the time. It is a lovely looking book with many pages of beautiful photography of finished projects. I just wish there was more solid advice, even about how to choose qualified pros.

I just wish there was more solid advice, even about how to choose qualified pros. I have been thinking about this review and realized that there were areas where there was solid specific advice: deciding whether to sell your current home or renovate, and how to best sell a home. I had forgotten these areas when I made my first assessment as they are towards the beginning of the book.

    I've never seen any of their shows, so this book is all my opinion is based on. Meh. Good photography of generic spaces. Not everyone wants granite countertops or non-woodburning fireplaces or open floor plans. It does have a hilarious screw-up, though: in a spread on fireplaces (all electric it looks like) there is a random picture of a bathroom mirror. That was the only exciting moment I had going through this. Library copy

    I'm probably being a little too generous, but I thought this quick read had some good information in it. If you've ever bought/sold a house, it isn't so much new information as it is an update and refresher. The only time I've seen their show, if you can cal it that, is when I'm at the gym. They have TVs lined up in like little glowing altars in front of the treadmills and stationary bikes. The sound is off, and I can't really see the captioning, so I don't know if that counts or not.

(And my other options are FAUX news, golf, or endless Pioneer Woman, so it's sort of more like I stare at it to avoid the rest.) Myabe their picking on each other is part of the show, I don't know. It gets kind of old after a while, but the lists and advice is solid if you can scan part the pretend bickering.

    Jonathan & Scott Drew are the dreamy pair who actually know who to turn a drab place into a dream home. Their new book is a practical step-by-step instruction manual for anyone who's ever thought of doing a reno. But, rather than just another how-to book, this one is more of a psychological handholding journey where they make you do the hard work of figuring out what's the right reno for you, and if you should even waste your time doing a reno in your current house.

Absolutely a must have for people who love decor and are thinking of renovating, and/or buying or selling their house. Lots of practical advice on what to do and what not to do. The book is absolutely fabulous, and I may just eventually accept the fact that I should give up my dream of The Property Brothers coming and helping me create my dream home. The dreamer in me says not just yet! But, in the meantime, I shall be practical and follow some advice from their amazing book.

    I watch their show when I'm at the gym (if we had cable, I'd probably be addicted) and the Scott Brothers' likable personalities are clearly showcased in this book. I enjoyed looking through it, though it depressed me no end. Our house screams "I was built in 1995!" and after reading this I feel like we'll never sell it unless we do some major work on it. Sigh. I would have liked more before and after pictures, but they did offer some practical advice.

    If you've seen their TV shows, most of the book will not be a surprise. There are some nice lists of information that are handy. The photographs are interesting even though most of the decorating is not to my taste.

    Lots of useful information. Well laid out, very comprehensive, and really aesthetically pleasing. Even so, the best part for me was the introduction, and learning what kind of backgrounds the brothers had, and the circumstances that lead them to be the property brothers! :)

    This book has everything you will ever need to think about in buying, selling or renovating your home. The book reads with the same funny banter the brothers create on the show Property Brothers. The ideas I have to turn my 1960s ranch into a cozy modern empty nester paradise are all in this book!

    Jonathan and Drew Scott give advice on improving, selling, and buying a home. Lots and lots of great photos. Recommended for fans of their shows and anyone who is thinking about re-designing their interior either to stay or sell.

    Fun book to read with a lot of ideas whether upgrading your home or getting it ready for sale. Additional sections on home purchase and what to look for. I only wish they had a section on maintenance and repair.

    If I had to pick, I'd pick Drew, but I wish Jonathan would come over and fix my house. I've seen and enjoyed their show many times, but this book gives their fascinating back story and so much more.

    I thought this book would be more about how to accomplish a remodel yourself so I was disappointed to find that it was more or a guide to whether you actually need a renovation, and if so what it should look like and who you should have accomplish that. It was also a little annoying that the book seems to have been written by both brothers at the same time - they both will make fun of each other in the same paragraph without ever specifying that the other person just picked up the writing and is I thought this book would be more about how to accomplish a remodel yourself so I was disappointed to find that it was more or a guide to whether you actually need a renovation, and if so what it should look like and who you should have accomplish that.

That said though there was some good ideas of things to consider if you're thinking of remodeling even a part of your home and also for if you are planning on selling or buying a home anytime soon.

    3.5 stars. If anything, I enjoyed the earlier chapters about buying vs. selling vs. renting, what to consider when buying (plus all those fees on top of the selling price), etc. There were also lots of pictures to give you inspiration but don't always seem feasible to execute in your own home. Again, this book mostly provided a list of things to consider during home buying, renovation and decorating that are helpful, but no specifics on how to renovate (if that's what you're looking for in this, 3.5 stars.

    I liked reading some tips on how to find (or create) a dream home. While I don't agree with every point that was made, I did learn some new things. As I'm trying to prep my first home for move in day, I found the spacing for furniture to be really helpful. My house isn't going to be a dream home for a whole, but I appreciate this book for showing me some ways to get there!

    Sarah

    Too pretentious for my taste, but as a recent homeowner (first time!) there was some decent info in the book. That is, if you can hold back the impending nausea from reading their self inflated ego babble. Sift through that, and you may find some helpful hints.

    The Property Brothers' are pretty flashy and don't claim to be experts in the nitty gritty, but do have a great overall picture for buying a house. I liked how they put in all the mistakes people make.
