Publisher's Summary

Many Americans dream of financial freedom, but they're stuck in dead-end jobs and don't know how to get there. You don't need to be one of them. If you invested $35,000 in the stock market today, it could take 52 years for that investment to grow to $1 million. But if you invested that same amount into one single-family $140,000 rental property, it would only take 19 years. With just two rental properties, you could generate $417,000 in profit in just 10 years. Skeptical? Good, because that's the first sign of a smart investor. This book will tackle that skepticism head on...and give you confidence and a path to financial freedom. 

This audiobook will teach you how to: 

  • Secure your investment money
  • Find your ideal market and a positive-cash-flow property
  • Efficiently manage your property
  • Handle your record keeping
  • Boost revenues and cut costs
  • File your taxes using a step-by-step process
  • Build your real estate portfolio

Didn't sign up for a math class

I spent an hour listening to dizzying numbers after numbers. the author isn't teaching he's just throwing out figures that will just keep you scratching your head. not interesting in the least. what a waste of a credit.

Eureka!!!

I saw a person’s review of this book and they gave it 1 star…Hmm

I don’t quite know what they thought that they were going to get out of this book, but this book just laid out the steps to owning and operating rental properties. I’ve been gaining knowledge on Real Estate for a couple of decades and now all of the information I’ve gained over the years is starting to make sense now.

This book is indeed The ABC’s of investing in Real Estate. The other reviewer made negative references to the math and figures claiming it was too many references made to numbers. Well what do you think the business of Real Estate is? It’s numbers! Clarence Avant said “It’s all about the numbers, that’s all deals are, numbers” if you are overwhelmed with math and numbers perhaps investing of any sort isn’t for you.

I absolutely loved this book and gained so much information from it. There were many things I already knew, but it put it all in to proper context.

Great book

Great book for aspiring or new investors. Love how he focused on SFHs in this one as most new investors start out this way. His next book will be on Multi family homes and I’m sure setting up a series where he goes bigger and bigger in real estate each book. I’m very excited for the next one to come out but for now I can take what I learned in this book and apply it so I am ready to move on to multis by the time the next book is released!

Good for beginners

Very high level information, if you have any experience with real estate, this audiobook is likely too sophomoric for you. If your just getting into real estate it can be valuable.

too many numbers

The content was good, the issue that caused eye glazing was the complete reading of all the numbers. when listening to an audio book there is NO way possible to follow/understand the numbers when they are read out i.e. $140,580.79 . I recommend reading a paper copy, listening was too annoying.

Great Book

I only wish the companion material was much more easily available from audible so you could download it onto a tablet and go through it as you're listening

New investor

This was a good read it seemed to cover most of the information needed to make a fair decision on real estate investing. I will be reading more before I dive much deeper into investing . I can never know enough .
