This book is extremely insightful into the world of real estate. After having used it for two real estate classes at the MBA level, I decided to keep it for future reference, figuring most real estate books wouldn't come near this text. The problem sets at the end of each chapter are also very useful in giving the potential investor a good foundation in how real estate finances work. Overall, I highly recommend this book to the novice or experienced real estate investor.

An excellent book . It covers theory with sufficient depth and real estate investment financial analysis at a near practitioner level. Suitable for MBA students. No nonsense vague topics. The book can be enhanced by including a Cdrom or a diskette containing the spreadsheets used in the book.

I've taken a look at a previous edition of the Brueggeman and Fisher text and it is definitely the only nuts and bolts handbook for practitioners. If you're new to the field and just out of school, try the Geltner and Miller text, which flows from real estate economics through portfolio analysis, reads like an MBA manual - it isn't as bad as most reviewers say, they're just stating where they think they are. These two are fundamentally different books, but just as worthy in their own area of approach.
Be advised that a new edition of Real Estate Finance and Investments has just been published in June 2004 by McGraw-Hill, ISBN 0071238212 - check it out on amazon.co.uk if you can't find it on amazon.com. Should come in at about seventy bucks. Well worth the cash, if only as an aide-memoire.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent comprehensive text that covers real estate investment analysis and finance. My students, who have English as a second language, have found this text easy to read and comprehend. The examples are well documented and the equations are presented in the least complex way. As a lecturer, I find that the extensive questions and problems at the end of each chapter are easily understood by students, but are also challenging enough so that the students gain a greater understanding of the materials. I highly recommend this text.

This is one of the best books I have ever read about real estate. I read plenty of books on real estate but this one does a great job on explaining how the real estate industry works. It talks about residential real estate market and its financing. Then it goes on to commercial real estate. It talks about real estate development and then the secondary market.
It really is a great book that I would recommend to anybody interested in real estate. As a real estate appraiser I gained a lot from this book.

Format: Hardcover
Great book for someone who's in real estate investment management and needs a groud up, starting with the basics, platform to understand and work in real estate finance.
Also a good review for more experienced pros, with lots of examples, financial tables, and financial concepts that you probably know enough to talk about but maybe don't remember exactly how you figure it out.
Great value!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book has clearly stood the test of time. It is now in its 11th edition. My professor uses the 9th edition, and most of our class has a later copy. The author provides step by step help for novice financiers who want to learn mortgages, internal rates of return, and net present value calculations.
I would offer a word of warning to people who consider buying older versions in order to save money. I have the 8th edition. The concepts have not changed (although the assumed interest rates certainly have!). However, the chapters have since been rearranged and the questions in the back of the book are different. If you are using this book for a class you may need to at least have access to a newer version.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book to prepare myself for an internship at some real estate company. Overall, I really like this book because this book:

1. covers extensive areas of real estate finance with solid contents

2. it comes with a CD that lets you see many of the examples given in the book on spread sheets.

3. it gives you a trial version of Argus software.

What I didn't like about this book is:

1. it doesn't give exercises on each component it teaches, so you won't have chances to learn and practice. You will have to wait till the end of each chapter and do problems which are very hard without practicing small exercises.

2. in addition to 1, it doesn't have any answers in the end of the book, so there is no way you can verify your answers.

3. this book would be so much easier to read if it broke down long paragraphs into smaller ones and used bullet points.

I would still recommend this book since it is very good overall.
