Strategies for creating real estate wealth by star ting small--and always making the right moves

Nationally known real estate expert John Schaub learned his craft in the best way possible--on the job, and through every kind of market. Over three decades, he learned to bank consistent profits as he built an impressive real estate mini-empire. Building Wealth One House at a Time reveals how virtually anyone can accumulate one million dollars worth of houses debtfree and earn a steady cash flow for life.

Unique in that it focuses on buying houses in good-quality neighborhoods, Schaub's nine-step program includes:

  • Renting to long-term tenants, with financial incentives to pay on time
  • Avoiding the temptation of bigger deals, which invariably include bigger problems
  • A 10-year plan to pay off debt and own houses free and clear

Excellent book. As a seasoned investor with over 25 houses and having read over 15 real estate books in the last two years, this was the best. The principles in this book can easily be applied to the normal person wanting to buy 1 house a year...or 1 a month. If you want to go from working for someone else... to working for yourself, buy this book. If you are just starting out or want to learn more, this is definately the book to read. Good 'practical' sense approach to creating wealth.
