    Fast Real Estate Profits!

    You¿ve seen all the shows on television that shows the audience how easy people make money flipping houses. But, I¿m sure that you¿ve wondered, just like I have, just how possible is it? Well, Sebastian Howell has laid it all out in black and white. The author has described the process in universal terms, meaning you could apply her principles to any geographical area. This book is easy to understand and deals in both the basics and the more complex material. It starts off with simple explanations and moves on to understanding the market and the business of making money through buying and selling houses. It gives clear definitions of the legal terms and the jargon that you¿ll come across in the industry. The author also clearly explains the various people you will associate with and their roles on your team. I really appreciated the examples used in the book. They help to clarify the material. The section covered on financing is comprehensive and understandable with tips to pulling it altogether. One the most beneficial sections in the book is a complete list of what to look for in a `flippable¿ house. She gives clear instructions of what to take note of, what can work and what might cause some problems. Once you¿ve found the ideal property, she leads you through the negotiating process. She deals with renovating properties and then moves the reader onto the selling process. The added bonus to the book is the comprehensive index at the back.

    Great Resource! A must read for anyone interested in Flipping houses

    Sebastian Howell explains the art of flipping houses in easy to understand and honest tone. She uses this book to lay out step by step all the things to consider and how to go through the whole process of flipping a house from, ¿Is this something I might want to do¿ to Depositing the money in the bank. Not only does she cover the whole process from beginning to end, but she covers all the options available to you at each stage. In doing this she covers the pro¿s and con¿s for each option and which people they would be best for and which people should choose another option at that particular stage. I¿ve read several other books trying to research if flipping is something I could do on the side. Howell puts flipping into perspective for those wanting to do it as their full time job as well as those not quite ready to give up their 9 to 5 jobs. Overall this is a very informative book and a definite resource for those just starting and those who are trying to make the decision¿ ¿To flip or not to flip?¿

    House Flipping Made Easy

    One of the biggest misconceptions about house flipping is it requires a great deal of money and paperwork. After reading this book, I learned that house flipping is not just for the wealthy and well-connected. Fast Real Estate Profits in Any Market breaks down the flipping process into easily understood segments. I found the chapter devoted to the legal end of house flipping especially helpful because this area tends to overwhelm and discourage people who are interested in house flipping. Four different types of mortgages are described, along with tips to help you present an impressive picture of yourself to potential lenders. The chapter also includes samples of standard legal documents commonly used in the industry, including a deed of sale and a contractor agreement. This allows the reader to review these documents at their leisure so that they are not shell-shocked when confronted with them during the house flipping process. This book also includes a detailed chapter about what to look for in a potential house and an extensive glossary of legal and financial terms. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in house flipping, but is nervous about the legal and financial aspects of the process.
