Whether you are new to real estate investing, or a seasoned real estate investor looking to maximize your returns, Rich Dad's Real Estate Advantages has something for you.
Beginning with very basic real estate investment tactics such as the 1031 exchange and increasing buying power with the bank's money, and gaining in complexity to taking advantage of tax code and decreasing legal risk, this book continues the tradition of good advice the Rich Dad system is known for.
The audio book version is read by Garrett Sutton, ESQ, one of the authors, with a forward by Robert Kiyosaki (the Rich Dad guru) and Sharon L. Lechter, CPA. The audio is of fine quality with no variation in sound level and Sutton reads it flawlessly. The CDs, whether intentionally or not, also seem to be broken into the three components of the book: introductory real estate investing, tax strategies, and legal strategies, so it would be relatively easy to re-listen to specific sections.
I would say that this book is so full of information that I felt I should be taking notes. Probably, listening multiple times would suffice, but many investors would like to reference specific sections and may prefer the hard copy rather than the audio. Someone just beginning, especially someone who commutes and can listen daily, will see the advantage of information repeat that the audio provides.
Armchair Interviews says: A good book--but this audio format won't be appropriate for everyone.
If you are already in real estate and know the basics, you may not need this book. If you already have your team of advisors and know who to go for when you have questions, you may not need this book. If you understand the differences between LLCs and LP and why one is better in California than in Nevada, you may not need this book.
For most beginning real estate investors, this book is just the right amount and just the right speed to get started. Garrett and Sharon don't look at the buy-and-flip models, but rather at the advantages of staying in real estate, building a portfolio, and intelligently upgrading your properties (1031 Exchanges). They also go over the long-term planning aspects of inheritance and how to move your properties to family members with minimal taxes. They don't profess a silver bullet, but rather a rational plan to financial success through real estate.
Verdict: Highly recommended.
With that being said, I do believe that this book does a good job explaining the advantages in real estate. I liked the explanation of 1031-exchanges that allow investors to get into a bigger property, deferring capital gains. You cannot do this type of exchange with stocks.
