Format: Paperback
Overall this book is quite helpful in explaining the foreclosure process, with tips on how to find foreclosures and how to be prepared in order to act quickly when pursuing foreclosure property. There's a helpful glossary of terms, great links to useful sites, and a balanced look at the upside and possible downsides of this type of investing.

What's lacking, in my opinion, is a clear explanation of the economics of buying foreclosures. In this regard, I feel like the book is a little too inside, even for this licensed real estate agent. The authors seem to assume that everyone understands the basics of aggressively leveraging equity in order to invest. One chapter about this would make all the difference.

My biggest gripe is the poor editing. The book is riddled with typos and sometimes poor composition. It feels very much like a first draft, and this fact, for me, eroded a little bit from the authors' sizable credibility. Lack of attention to detail makes it feel like the authors are only out to make a quick buck.

If you're interested in finding and investing in foreclosure properties, this book is a great primer. Just be prepared to do your homework, learn from your mistakes, and ask lots of questions. Also, be sure you have a good understanding of actual financing and risk. It's still a good buy.

After reading the book, I came away with a little bit better understanding of the foreclosure process but it did little for me in practical application. They have a big push at the end of the book for the website RealtyTrac.com which they claim is the best on the web yet they say they have no vested interest in this site. Being skeptical by nature I did a review of the RealtyTrac.com website and found most everyone was moderately to severly displeased with the site. Here is one link which actually seems to think the site has illegal implications. [...] This does not give me great confidence in these authors if their highly recommended website for finding foreclosures is so disliked. Do your own search on Realtytrac and see. I admit I never subscribed to the site because of was afraid of wasting my money.

Book was very informative on current housing market in Southern California and all over the United States. Enjoyable to read, book was set up as reference guide, data was easy to refer to. Finding Foreclosures is a wealth of knowledge that will educate and enable you to take advantage of real estate investments. Before you start your search, I highly recommend reading Finding Foreclosures: An Insiders Guide to Cashing in on This Hidden Market.

The authors do a generally good job of getting you thinking about the potential of investing in this growing and potentially lucrative market. However, this book is "lite" on content and does a poor job of explaining the some of processes. The author(s) personal examples are interesting and keep you somewhat interested in his/her trials and tribulations. Nonetheless, any of the information contained in this book can be easily obtained for free if you do a "basic" search on the internet - Google,Yahoo,Ask.com. Overall, this book is fair, with a few interesting anecdotes, but not much help other than to let me know I need to buy a more detailed book.
BTW: Do not believe online ratings of a book, unless there are more than a few reviews...anyone can have a friend or family member write a review.
