Now updated — your guide to building long-term wealth through real estate

Want to be a successful real estate investor? Eric Tyson and Robert Griswold present their proven strategies, along with updated tips for easily riding out downturns in the real estate market. From homes and apartment buildings to duplexes, commercial properties, and real estate investment trusts (REITs), you'll master every aspect of investing in and financing properties, and see how to increase their value.

Build a foundation for investing success — get your finances in order, weigh your investment options, understand the risks, and work with real estate pros

You have to pay to play — raise capital, finance your purchases, and secure the best mortgage terms

Find and evaluate properties — choose the best locations, understand leases, project a property's cash flow, and decide how much to pay

Master the negotiation process — assemble attractive offers, complete the purchase agreement, conduct formal due diligence, and close the sale

Manage your property — be a top-notch landlord (or hire help), get the insurance you need, know the tax angles, and decide when and how to sell

I am only mid-way through this book but it has already answered so many of my questions (that another book did not)! I am new to real estate investing but not new to real estate. This book is layed out (like the rest of the Dummies books) in a very easy to follow format. It points out items to definitely remember when considering transactions and also points out warnings.

Also, since they have no agenda other than to help you understand the process, they did not try to sell you anything (i.e.; get rich quick schemes). This Dummies book gives it to you straight -- Why you should invest in real estate; How real estate investments stack up against other types of investments, such as stocks, etc.; The benefits of building your wealth by staying in for the long term; What cash flow to expect in the short term, including the possibility of negative cash flow.

Upon the completion of reading this book, I realize that the authors have set a new and comprehensive standard for real estate investors. Investment in Real Estate is an interesting and often frustrating process. Don't let the title fool you, this is a SERIOUS book for serious real investors whether novice or veteran.

The authors obviously know their subject, which is highly diverse. You are guided around pitfalls, and problems. It's almost like you have a wise sage holding your hand because the authors have "been there and done that". I appreciated their candor and honesty throughout the book, but in particular their take on the "information guru's" who sell their get-rich-quick real estate tapes and CD's on the unsuspecting public.

All you other real estate authors take note. You have a new standard to shoot for. Five stars, easy.

I have done some investing on my own but wanted to learn more about real estate. This book is awesome. It covers the basics and more complicated real estate investments. I now know what types of real estate I am going to pursue and how to analyze them. I read the entire book but I am sure I will keep coming back to it for the worksheets and checklists.
