    Misleading Title

    This book is about buying real estate with no money down through OWNER FINANCING. Out of 20 chapters only 3 are not devoted to convincing the home's current owner to finance the house for you. These three chapters are one on conventional loans, one of FHA/VA loans and one on Foreclosures. A mere 10 pages of this 319 page book.

    Good for newbies like me.

    In this book, Susan Smith Alvis nails down the ins and outs of purchasing real estate for first time (or second, or fifth time) home buyers. With detailed instructions on how to get your finances together, what you can afford, and how to look for loans, she makes the complicated world of the real estate transaction seem simple. The book is sectioned into subjects such as ¿Looking At Your Finances¿, ¿Creative Financing¿ and ¿Foreclosures¿, explaining each step in the process of home ownership. Interspersed with real life examples from realtors, the chapters build on each other, culminating in the sale of the home and its aftermath. Ms. Alvis even gives a list of things to do after purchase, such as changing the locks, keeping a home journal, and advertising rental property. This is a must read for anyone buying their first home, or anyone who is purchasing property for financial gain (such as rental homes).

    A must read for anyone buying property!!!

    Thank you Susan. I feel that I should say that to you after reading your book ¿How to Buy Real Estate Without a Down Payment in Any Market: Insider Secrets from the Experts Who Do It Every Day¿. This book is a great asset to someone who is going to be purchasing property. I have bought 2 houses and found the entire process to be mind boggling trying to understand everything. Thanks to Susan¿s book I feel I am now prepared to continue purchasing more property, but I am going to do it feeling a whole lot more at ease.

    A must for anyone considering buying property

    It is said that real estate is the biggest and most profitable business in the world, but I didn¿t think I could ever afford to buy any more property until I read ¿How to Buy Real Estate Without a Down Payment in Any Market.¿ I can not believe how much information is packed in this book. The writing is easy to understand, making it possible for anyone to benefit from purchasing property. A retired real estate agent wrote this book to assist people who want to profit from buying real estate. The author advises that it is in the buyer¿s best interest to work with a realtor, but she also states that it is possible to successfully complete the process on your own. The book lays out an easy to follow step-by-step process to aid investors in buying property with no money down and possible leaving the closing table with a sizable check plus your new property. The author also includes a complete glossary and a section of tips, hints, and reminders for real estate transactions that makes it an excellent resource for beginners and experts alike. I would recommend this book to both people contemplating their first real estate purchase and as a reference book for seasoned professionals who make a living buying and selling real estate.

    Motivational AND Informational -- A Great Combination!

    I just finished reading How to Buy Real Estate Without a Down Payment in Any Market and I am completely psyched by the amount of information and ideas the book contained that I can now put into action as I move toward investing in my first piece of real estate. Susan Smith Alvis has provided a great formula for even the most inexperienced real estate investor. Her tone is conversational and inviting ¿ I never felt like she was talking down to me even when she was explaining complicated tax strategies. The inserts of professional experiences spattered throughout gave credibility and reinforcement to the information as well. This book offers a great assortment of hints, tricks and professional secrets that makes it possible for almost anyone to succeed in purchasing property ¿ even if you are cash poor or have less than perfect credit? Sure, Alvis acknowledges that some situations offer a challenge, but she never one allows a feeling of discouragement to creep in. She knows, and you do too by the end of the book, that with some diligence and attention to the strategies contained in the book, anyone can succeed. To close the book, Alvis provides an Appendix that is packed with extra information including a checklist of items to include in an offer of purchase, how to interview a prospective real estate agent, and even how to enhance your credit report in six months. This book is a MUST READ for anyone thinking of purchasing real estate. This is especially true for someone who previously didn¿t think it possible because they didn¿t have a down payment. Susan Smith Alvis shows you just how possible it really is.

    Great Title!

    What a great book to have, even if you just buy it for the appendix. The appendix is what really shined in this title, as it has so many checklists, questions to ask real estate agents, sample classified ads and much more! The rest of the book is quite useful, as well. It takes you through all the various ways you can purchase a property as well as the steps you should take up to the closing. Whether you are making a checklist to determine exactly what you want in a house or determining how to finance (Owner Financing, Numerous Types of Mortgages, etc.), you will find good, solid information in an easy to read format. Another thing I found helpful in this work was the glossary. Not everyone has extensive knowledge of real estate terminology, so this book makes it easy to learn just what is being discussed through helpful definitions. If you are planning to buy a home, this might be just the title for you!

    It Works!

    I¿ve read about it and heard about it, but I¿ve never, until now, investigated ¿no money down¿ real estate practices and opportunities. This book describes the process with clarity and easily convinced me of the likelihood of my success in finding and securing land and homes for no money down in my rural county in Virginia. From leases, wraparound mortgages and other novel financing options, Susan Smith Alvis lays out all of the options, plus the means to structuring one¿s own finances to assure success. This is a gem of a book and a must read for anyone even remotely considering real estate investing. I can¿t say that I¿ve already taken Ms. Alvis¿ advice and made millions, but in the few days since I read the book I located, with the help of a real estate agent friend, three properties here that are available to me and affordable and can be financed without a dime down. If it weren¿t for Ms. Alvis and this book, I wouldn¿t have thought it possible and would not have even looked.
