Complete Guide to Real Estate Tax Liens and Foreclosure Deeds: Learn in 7 Days
I was expecting to read about all the steps involved with purchasing, financing, marketing, upgrading and managing real estate in this book. I suppose I assumed this would be like a dummy's guide to real estate investing, but it was a little more for the novice investor--at least it was more advanced than the 101 title implies, especially in the final chapter. I was let down in some areas, but the last few chapters about managing and valuating property are phenomenal.
I scaled down the rating due to all the publicity of additional reading material but I did think the final chapter on valuing properties was incredible so I gave it 3 stars. Had it been a little more in depth about financing real estate and excluded all the promoting of other books, then I could've given it 5 stars.
So, after ten minutes of feeling tricked by Trump I flipped through and decided to give Gary W. Eldred a shot. He didn't disappoint in fact he did a fantastic job. As I read more and more real estate books this one surely did have a lot of overlap, but it did excel at making me think about re-purposing houses in a way that would make them more profitable. His thoughts on market segments in Chapter 7 were new to me, and will help me make money in the future. I'm especially referring to the part about college students and seniors. I see these as two rapidly expanding segments and so do the authors.
Also I've been guilty of focusing solely on price and not paying attention to some of the other deal points like available financing included in Real Estate deals so this was a good reminder. Using the Comparative Sales, Cost Approach, and Income approach is nothing I have not seen before but using them all together to create an Estimated market value is a logical extension.
In the end this book made me smarter, and isn't that what all books are designed to do? I'm going to keep picking up Trump University books even if they arn't actually written by Donald himself.
