Overview

Even in less-than-stellar markets, no investment strategy has created more millionaires than real estate-and it doesn't take a genius to do so. Updated and expanded, this new edition of the bestselling Are You Dumb Enough to Be Rich? walks you through a special 120-day plan for starting down the road to real estate wealth. You'll find the information and resources you need to find the neighborhoods with the most potential, avoid the common pitfalls of real estate investment, and build personal and professional credibility.

Straightforward and easy-to-follow, the book contains a foolproof, step-by-step system even financial novices can use to achieve wealth and financial freedom. This new edition includes exciting trends and opportunities to take advantage of, changes in specific state laws, and even ways to actually profit from a downturn! In addition, the book now includes the author's new "Hot Mapping" system for figuring out where to invest.

Too many real estate books focus on stories and unrealistic examples of how other people became rich. Are You Dumb Enough to Be Rich? offers real strategies for anyone wishing to make smart, low-risk investments...and make serious amounts of money from the buying and selling of real estate.
