    A New Standard For Other Real Estate Authors To Follow!

    I want to first state that I am an acquaintance of one of the authors, Robert Griswold. And since I know Robert is a member of the teaching faculty of the Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM), I was anxious to read his new book. (Another great book he authored is 'Property Managment for Dummies (GREAT). Upon the completion of reading this book, I realize that the authors have set a new and comprehensive standard for real estate investors. Investment in Real Estate is an interesting and often frustrating process. Don't let the title fool you, this is a SERIOUS book for serious real investors whether novice or veteran. The authors obviously know their subject, which is highly diverse. You are guided around pitfalls, and problems. It's almost like you have a wise sage holding your hand because the authors have 'been there and done that'. I appreciated their candor and honesty throughout the book, but in particular their take on the 'infomercial guru's' who sell their get-rich-quick real estate tapes and CD's on the unsuspecting public on late night television. All you other real estate authors take note. You have a new standard to shoot for. Five stars, easy.

    Got this for thoughts

    This book is layed out like the rest of the Dummies books in a very easy to follow format. It points out items to definitely remember when considering transactions and also points out warnings. This book I give 5 stars because it truly explains everything to the average Joe. It isn't boring. You get to learn the different aspects of real estate investing. Real estate investing isn't limited to just flipping houses, you'll find by reading this book there's many more roads that's equally profitable.
