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.
"This perfect storm of tight money and excess property supply (especially foreclosures) has created perfect opportunity for you."
And let's not forget what Warren Buffett said:
"Buy when others remain fearful, sell when others become greedy."
Even though there are opportunities, readers should be realistic about how much money they can make. This book not only teaches investors about real estate, but also about how to have the right mental attitude to succeed in real estate. This investment philosophy is simply real estate value investing. It means that investors should buy properties at the right place, right time, and right price. This is very similar to Warren Buffett's style of investing in stocks where he buys great companies at the right price. I highly recommend this book to any real estate investor.
