About the Author

Garrett Sutton is an attorney with over 20 years experience in assisting individuals and businesses to determine the most appropriate structures to limit liability, protect their assets and advance their personal and financial goals

From AudioFile

In a program that is part of Kiyosakis Rich Dad series, a CPA and an attorney offer a concise, pro-active, and enthusiastic guide to real estate investing. Framing their ideas within Kiyosakis theory of cash-flow quadrant, they show how owning property can be a tax-advantaged means to earn enough money to start other businesses and become financially independent. Though all investment strategies have risks, they explain their ideas with enough detail and clear examples to help listeners understand the complexities of real estate. Working with trusted advisors and using their investing formulas can moderate the risks. Garrett Suttons tone and pacing convey a sense of measured optimism and curiosity.

Format: Paperback
This book is designed to help you develop a smarter real estate acquisition plan. It shows how you can look hard at your assets and liabilities and develop a leverage plan for purchases and a tax advantage plan to maximize your cash flow. There is some good advice on networking, mentoring, joining a local real estate club and building a team of advisors. The explanation of tax strategies, depreciation and insurance is not as strong or in depth as I'd liked to have read. However the chapters on tax-free exchanges are very enlightening; especially to those of who have read about it but have been afraid to do a 1031. The book also offers other good advice on homestead advantages and responsibilities for legal due diligence. The strength of the book for me, and probably most other investors who have less than 10 properties, is (1) the advice on asset protection; e.g. use of a Limited Liability Corporation, and (2) smart use of the tax-free advantages in 1031 exchanges. I strolgy recommend it for those who have a few properties and are ready to make a bigger bolder move in real estate investing.

(Available in both book and audio--reviewed as an audio)

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.

I bought my first property just before I purchased this book. I received it just before an international business trip, and didn't get any sleep on the flight because I was pouring over the basic concepts and ideas that fill this wonderful book.

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.

What can you say? It's another rich dad book. Very informative and written primarily by professionals with an in-depth view. The book is a good read for anyone. It gave me a lot to think about and some things to discuss with my team. No dull spots in this book. Read it cover to cover in a few days. Worth reading twice.

I believe that real estate has certain advantages as described in this book such as 1031-exchange and depreciation, but I will warn readers about the benefits of leverage. The authors argue that real estate is superior to other investment alternatives, such as stocks or mutual funds, because leverage can increase returns. While this is true, leverage works well on the way up and destroy returns on the way down. I believe that many people, especially real estate investors, learned this lesson the hard way when property values plunged starting in 2008.

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.
