A hands-on guide for anyone who wants to make a fortune in real estate
In The Beginner's Guide to Real Estate Investing, successful real estate investor and author Gary Eldred gives readers concise and straightforward advice on avoiding common mistakes and achieving uncommon success in the housing market. Full of proven wisdom and the insight of a veteran investor, this comprehensive guide covers everything novices need to know about real estate, but also offers proven guidance that will help experienced investors stay sharp.
Eldred doesn't offer a quick-and-easy blueprint which wouldn't work anyway or promise overnight success. He covers topics real investors need to make real money. Whereas most real estate books take a one-size-fits-all approach, ignoring the fact that the market in Peoria isn't anything like the market in Chicago, Eldred shows investors how to adapt their strategies to fit changing market conditions. He covers more than just types of properties or financing, but also explains topics like tax certificates, commercial property, and discounted notes. Rather than tell investors what to do and exactly how to do it, Eldred provides the conceptual tools investors need to weigh the pros and cons of any course of action, allowing them the freedom to make their own success. This book doesn't just tell readers how to finance a condo or rehab a fixer-upper; The Beginner's Guide to Real Estate Investing covers all the vital aspects of real estate for anyone who's serious about making money.
