The author is a wealthy investor. So was his father and grandfather. Third generation wealth. He can't tell you how to get wealthy from personal experience. All the book talks about is how rich he is and how rich his partners are.
I'm very disappointed and requested a refund.
The author argues that the future for student housing is bright. As more students of the Echo Generation are entering college, higher learning institutions do not keep up with the demand for housing, and therefore, rents and cash flow are likely to go up as demand must meet supply.
- Mariusz Skonieczny, author of Why Are We So Clueless about the Stock Market? Learn how to invest your money, how to pick stocks, and how to make money in the stock market
What Zaransky does provide are objective statistics and trends from reputable third parties, along with solid guidelines to make the investing process a prudent one. Using this info and approach, he patiently and with proper due diligence, evaluates each deal on all its merits. He also advocates walking away when the deal doesn't meet the established criteria.
I have been an active player in the student housing market for 30-plus years and found his book to be practical and on the money. I would highly encourage any real estate investor whether novice or seasoned, to take advantage of a great resource.
