If you're looking for a complete book on real estate investing, I highly recommend The Real Estate Investors Handbook.

This section clearly outlines the rights and responsibilities of a landlord, how to attract and keep good tenants, and how to protect your investments.

Given the large volume of unhelpful books on real estate investing, I am pleased to see so much valuable information in a single book.

Having been a part-time real estate investor myself, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Steven Fisher's book. Given the large volume of unhelpful books on real estate investing, I am pleased to see so much valuable information in a single book. If you have been, or plan to get, involved in real estate investing, this is the single best book to use.

Fisher covers all of the strategies that make for successful investing: starting with little money, "flipping," mortgages, foreclosures, and REO's. Unlike other books, Fisher also explains the secrets to finding the right properties. Given that property identification is the most common mistake that would-be real estate investors make, this chapter of the book is especially useful.

The book also includes some effective plans for tax advantages and exit strategies. If you want to own and make money from real estate, get this book!

Whenever I have thought about investing in real estate, I always dismissed it as a "no, that's not for me." I had seen the various folks on TV saying `buy my papers so you can learn the tricks to purchasing homes for pennies on the dollar with no money down' but I never felt like I could spend the money on their product. Then, after searching through this book by way of the Search Inside and reading a page here and there, I knew I had to purchase it. The information it contained was worth much more than the cost I paid to purchase it.

The book spends a lot of time on understanding the various financial nuances of purchasing real estate. It has various worksheets throughout it to help even the most mathematically challenged person (like me) understand some very complex concepts like interest, mortgage payments, returns on investment and even landlord/tenant agreements. Further, the book offers a basic business plan and guidelines for setting up your own operation.

The book is full of information and offers an accessible look at the world of real estate investment. It acknowledges that the complexity of real estate while keeping the text easy-to-understand and interesting. The step-by-step approach the book takes makes it an excellent resource for an investment beginner like me. I'm sure that a more seasoned investor would also find useful information in the book as well. I'm confident the small investment price I paid for the book will multiply exponentially as I put the information into action and start my own investment program.

"The Real Estate Investors Handbook" is a terrific guide for successful investing. The book could be a little overwhelming for a novice, but it is an excellent resource for the serious investor. It offers an in-depth and complete guide to making profits from real estate. The book also stresses the importance of record keeping and provides an assortment of financial forms and letters to be used when dealing with your property. Also included in the book are real-life testimonies from investors telling about their real estate successes and failures.

This book is a necessity for all real estate investors. The tips and helpful hints are an invaluable resource that can be referred to over and over again.

Format: Paperback
The Real Estate Investors Handbook is an excellent tool for anyone interested in a career, or even a part-time venture, as a real estate investor. But, perhaps even better, this handbook isn't aimed only at newcomers; it's also chock full of valuable information for experienced real estate investors. In addition to an extensive glossary, there are sample letters for landlords to use with problem tenants, case studies from seasoned real estate investors, and charts for evaluating potential investment properties.

The Real Estate Investors Handbook focuses on both residential and commercial properties, which gave me great insight and sparked an interest in the commercial side of real estate investment, something I'd not considered before. The most helpful aspects of the book were definitely the sections on being a landlord (including great questions to ask to make sure being a landlord is right for you) and how to find and evaluate investment property. Other topics covered in-depth are flipping property, finding a quality team to work with, and negotiating. Essentially, the book covers everything you could want and need to know about real estate investing.

If you're looking for a complete book on real estate investing, I highly recommend The Real Estate Investors Handbook. It provides solid information backed by examples from highly successful real estate investors. It's comprehensive, easy-to-understand, and ultimately a valuable read with tons of advice that certainly has me more confident about starting a career in real estate investment. Definitely gets five stars from me!

I realize this book has excellent reviews other than this one, but I cannot imagine that the previous reviewers truly found this book to be as useful as they described. In every single subject covered in the book, the matter is covered only cursorily with absolutely no in-depth discussion (or even references). At best, each of the chapter headings in this book could be used as a search to direct your reading elsewhere in order to learn more about the subject. In no way could this be considered useful prepratory information. In short, I am disappointed that I purchased this book and would STRONGLY advise against anyone else buying this book.
