5.0 out of 5 stars Does the work for you
This book concisely provides valuable advice on all aspects of real estate from investing in homes to commercial properties. True, someone with enough time and energy may be able to piece together aspects of the book by searching and evaluating all of the websites mentioned, but that could be painful and take a very long time (days, weeks??). Why bother? This book does...

Mr. Irwin has good ideas using the internet and networking for real estate rewards. This model will work, but it takes work and relationships.

He mentions homeowner's insurance and obtaining an umbrella policy. Homeowner's insurance is not the right policy for rental property. Check with your insurance agent for the correct policy.

True, someone with enough time and energy may be able to piece together aspects of the book by searching and evaluating all of the websites mentioned, but that could be painful and take a very long time (days, weeks??). Why bother? This book does the work for you by filtering the pertinent information and combining that the author's salient commentary.

This review is from: The Armchair Real Estate Investor: Put the Internet to Work for You and Reap Property Profits (Paperback)
Mr. Irwin has good ideas using the internet and networking for real estate rewards. This model will work, but it takes work and relationships.

He mentions homeowner's insurance and obtaining an umbrella policy. Homeowner's insurance is not the right policy for rental property. Check with your insurance agent for the correct policy.

He mentions not checking with a current landlord when you are acting as a landlord to check on the background of a prospective tenant. It is true some landlords will lie about the rental history of their vacating tenant, but we as professional property managers are truthful with our colleaques. Some mom and pops are a risk for false information. However, asking the right questions requiring an answer other than yes or no will reveal useful information. Always check with a current landlord.

A good book for the basics.

5.0 out of 5 stars John Nuzzolese, President of The Landlord Protection Agency, February 18, 2008
This review is from: The Armchair Real Estate Investor: Put the Internet to Work for You and Reap Property Profits (Paperback)
The Armchair Real Estate Investor was written at just the right time. Robert Irwin recognizes that we are in an era of transition when it comes to the real estate business.
The internet now plays a major role in the business of real estate investing. That is why nationally recognized real estate author, Robert Irwin features choice websites representing the best internet tools to use in various stages of the real estate investment business. The Armchair Real Estate Investor is easy to read and provides lots of great tips to both new and seasoned real estate professionals.
I am honored to have The Landlord Protection Agency featured in Mr. Irwin's latest book.
