From the Inside Flap
How a Dirt-Poor Landscaper Cracked the Code to Emerging Market Real Estate Investingand Built a Financial Empire
While many real estate markets have cooled off, there are major hot spots throughout the country that are booming due to population growth and urban expansion. These emerging markets are where the next wave of big-time real estate profits will be found. In Emerging Real Estate Markets, David Lindahl shows you how to find these markets, get started investing with little of your own cash, and maximize your profits.
The key lies in knowing how real estate markets cycle through ups and downs. If you know what to look for, you can tell when a market is about to heat up. Invest at the right time in the right place, and your profits will be dramatic. Does that sound too good to be true? It's not. The tactics you'll read here helped Lindahl, a landscaper when he started investing in real estate, to build a real estate empire!
Even if your market isn't currently heating up, Lindahl will show you long-distance "hands-off" strategies for finding and investing in other markets that are. He also provides practical strategies for investing in markets in any stage of the cycle so you can invest no matter where you are or where your market is.
Inside, you'll discover how to:
- Recognize the characteristics of emerging markets
- Tell the difference between gold mines and land mines
- Close your first dealeven if you don't have much money
- Determine where and when to buy
- Maintain positive cash flow
- Find diamonds in the rough
- Avoid the biggest mistakes investors make in emerging markets
- Finance all your deals with a simple four-step system
- Accurately rate the investment potential of any property
- Build a team of professionals to help you succeed
Real estate investing is not a guessing game. If you know what signs to look for, you can accurately predict the next hot markets. Plus, with the smart investing tactics Lindahl shares, you'll be able to invest with confidence, intelligence, and success.

Ignore the positive reviews! I trusted that since there were so many positive reviews for this book it would be worth my time. I was wrong. Please read all of the negative reviews on this book. They are all spot on.
While the info was good and helpful for someone who knew nothing about commercial real estate investing I was very disappointed that he hardly covered the 'emerging markets' topic, as I expected he would given the title. He goes over the 4 phases and explains a little but the book is mostly how to go about finding deals and doing them.
In addition to hardly any coverage on the 'emerging markets' this book, like his others, contains too much repeating. Yes, some concepts are important and need to be mentioned more than once but at the same time he seems to just give variations of the same ideas over and over each chapter.
I would recommend this book, along with his others, to someone with no knowledge of commercial real estate investing but it is just a very basic primer and can be a bit salesy as he pushes you to his website to get more info, most of which is no longer available.
Excellent strategies clearly articulated. Well worth the small investment to improve your financial investments
