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
