Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Dave Lindahl was a broke landscaper when he used a cash advance on his credit card to buy his first three-unit apartment house—and immediately reaped a $972 per month positive cash flow. Twelve months later he owned eleven multi-family buildings and had $10,000 per month in extra income. Today, he controls over $140 million in real estate. In Multi-Family Millions, Lindahl shows you how anyone can get started investing in small apartment houses and make great money doing it. You can do it on a part-time basis, and best of all, you never need to deal with tenants.

Compared with single-family homes, multi-family properties hold much greater profit potential and allow you to earn more money on each deal you complete. There is also far less competition in the multi-family market. In addition, having more units under a single roof reduces your investment risk and offers higher long-term profits. The rewards of multi-family investing are obvious, but how can you benefit when you have very little time or money?

Multi-Family Millions is the step-by-step guide that shows you how to get into the multi-family game—and get out with big profits. It provides expert coverage of the most effective investing strategies and gives you guidance on every stage of the process—from finding properties with great profit potential to buying, renovating, and reselling them for big money.

With Lindahl's expert help, you'll discover how to:

  • Identify troubled multi-family properties that are ripe for repositioning

  • Negotiate great purchase prices for target properties

  • Flip properties for fast cash or improve them with affordable, value-adding repairs

  • Resell properties at maximum value with minimum hassle

No matter your level of investing expertise or experience, Multi-Family Millions gives you the perfect strategy for success—especially for investors with little time and little cash on hand. Whether you're an expert investor or just starting out, Multi-Family Millions reveals the proven strategies, tactics, and infor-mation you need to make big profits—faster and easier than you ever thought possible.

From the Back Cover

Discover why apartment houses are the best investment in today's real estate market

The key to making big profits in real estate is to go against the traditional wisdom. When the masses are buying, it's often time to sell. When everyone is selling, there are huge bargains to be found. In Multi-Family Millions, contrarian real estate investor Dave Lindahl shows you how to read the market cycle, and explains why now is a great time to get started investing in apartment houses—even if it's your first time investing in real estate and you have no money for a down payment.

With a simple two- to five-unit multi-family property, or a thirty-unit apartment building, you can implement the same strategies Lindahl used in over 500 deals to build his own real estate fortune:

  • How to reposition a multi-family property for maximum profit

  • Where to get the money for your first deal

  • How to own an apartment house and never deal with tenants

  • Ten bad mistakes rehabbers make

  • Three proven principles for attracting great deals on multi-family properties

  • When and how to resell for huge profits

Conventional wisdom says real estate investors should start with single-family houses. Discover why it's easier and much more profitable to invest in multi-families!


More About the Author

If you need a refresher on my background, I was a burned-out landscaper 14 years ago. I had:

No money (OK, that's not totally true; I did have a whole $800 in the bank);

No time (that one is definitely true, because each night after a full day of grunting dirt and railroad ties around in my landscaping business, it was all I could do to pop a cool one and collapse in my chair in front of the TV);

No experience. My family didn't know anything about real estate. In fact, I got the "Dave, you're making a big mistake!" speech when I mention real estate.

I didn't "luck into" a fortune. I instead made it using tested and proven systems I developed over time. At first they were crude, but I hate making the same mistake twice, so I got better fast.

Dave Lindahl is an accomplished real estate investor who has been involved in over 550 deals and controls over $240 million in real estate. Dave is the principle owner of the Lindahl Group and the Bostonian Investment Group, a real estate investment company that acquires properties in emerging markets across the nation.

Dave also operates RE Mentor (www.rementor.com), a publishing and seminar company that shows investors how to profit from all forms of real estate investing. He is also a popular speaker and trainer at real estate investment clubs, national conventions, and seminars throughout the country.

only cycles that count are LOCAL ones"!

"Do You Have "The Attitude"?

That's when you Get To Do:

--WHAT you want

--WHERE you want

--WITH WHOM you want!

"My Systems Will Get You There!"



"Whenever you reduce your price or give something up, ask the other
party also to make a concession."

the seller through so nothing's a surprise."

"Happiness is Positive Cash Flow!"



Dave Lindahl's Principles of Successful Investing


Have integrity in everything you do

You're not in the real estate business; you're in the marketing
business.

You have to respect yourself in order to get that from others.

Start small, simple, and inexpensively. But start!

Expect to feel a little uneasy at first, and be HAPPY about the fact
that some parts of the business take work.

Be thrifty. Don't be cheap.

Follow my systems before you create your own.

Don't waste time with unmotivated sellers.

Delegate before you think you are ready.

If it works, keep using it; if it doesn't, then tweak it. If it still
doesn't, toss it.

You're marketing to a "moving parade".

Track your activities and results.

Follow Up!

Keep going.

Format: Hardcover
It's a good book for entry level/general information. Lindahl even provides a lot of high level personal experience which is helpful to reference from. Having said that, this book is really just a stepping stone into the David Lindahl school of buying his products. I say this because there is not much information in the book that you can't find online though the fact that Lindahl has consolidated it all and even tried to validate it through his own experiences, the information remains nothing new or earth shattering.
This isn't a book that will get you into apartments it merely sets you down the right direction and yes you can perhaps get involved in apartment investing without any further education from Lindahl but there are definite questions that have to be answered that are not in this book; questions I believe he intentionally left out to entice the readers to up their investment and purchase one of his home study kits or attend one of his live seminars, which he advertises in every other chapter or so in the book (sometimes directly and other times indirectly).
Don't get me wrong, I found this book very helpful and took a large amount of notes but I also had a list of questions that I wanted answered before I ever picked up the book and those questions remain unanswered. Questions like -
How do you determine the asking price?
Aside from obtaining the money for closing the deal be it via traditional lending, angel investors, friends/ family etc, where do you get the money for the up front cost for due dilligence or better yet how much does that cost (inspection fees, attorney fees, application for loan fees, etc).

Format: Hardcover
I read this book cover to cover in one weekend and took notes along the way. If you are a novice investor, Mr Lindahl gives you some excellent information about investing in apartment buildings. Having said that, it is also apparent that Mr Lindahl has taken some significant risks in building his portfolio, both with his own money and with other people's money. Many of the examples he gives would take some serious cash because his deals make their greatest gain thorough what he calls repositioning. But even if you aren't up for repositioning, the book gives some great direction to the practical steps in real estate investing that must be taken so you don't get railroaded into a bad deal on your first property.

What is said in this book, over and over and over again is more or less common knowledge. What isn't one can easily learn and pick up in the industry with a little interest and by asking a few questions. I have no idea why some of these people are giving this book over the top reviews. In my opinion, it's more or less a scam.

I was quite impressed about the variety of information Dave has included, he basically guides you through all the steps you need to know to go out and make deals. I had his famous Multifamily riches set with CDs and books, it costs hundreds of dollars in the market but i find all the information you need is already in this book. He even says that you are able to make successful investments after reading and understanding the topics here. Thumbs up to Dave for squeezing up his years of experience into such a book ...a wealth of information essential for multifamily REIs.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Halfway through this book and it is so far very, very good. It provides a lot of insightful information for anyone looking to invest in multi-family units. I did take away one star because it does appear that the book omits very specific steps on how to build a real estate empire. It gives you enough that I think if you're savvy enough, you can put two and two together. However, I can see some people wishing that a step-by-step blueprint is included and so far halfway through the book it seems obvious that it's not.

Definitely worth a read as there are still a lot of helpful tidbits inside.

Dave continues to do it differently. He gives more information than the normal guru. However, I would like to have more. You need to read more than one of his books. He also tells the bad with the good. I have had rentals for over twenty years and can tell you I would much rather have no management hassels. Doing it wrong the first time can haunt you forever. I have emailed Dave in the past asking for answers to some of his ideas and gotten a timely response. I highly recommend this book.

I have been an investor and rehabbing for several years with single and dual family homes. During this time I have read several books on Multi Family Apartment ownership. For some time I have wanted to move on to larger units but was concerned that I didn't have the knowledge to move forward. Each time I finished reading the other books I came away still feeling I needed more practical information to move forward. After reading Dave's book I came away feeling it's time to make the move (to take action). I have now started putting my team together following the advise Dave outlines in this book. So far it is working great.
