Eddie Godshalk is an expert in his field. He is an author, speaker, real estate coach, consultant, and an investor. The information he gives in " The Missing Keys to Thriving in Any Real Estate Market" comes from his experience, knowledge and research. The most impressive aspect about this book is he gives a no-bull approach - he says it like it is.
For me, the most important aspect of this book were the false assumptions. The one that stood out the most was "Licensed Real Estate Professionals, and the Web, Have The Most Current Information." According to Godshalk the most reliable is not MLS as most of us assume, but his Home Value PredictorT. It is an analytical tool that gives information at the neighborhood level and future price movements. Using the book, along with his accompanying website, you will gain assurance in which market to pursue.
When taking time to delve into Godshalk's book, we as real estate investors, or those of us that are considering investing, will find imperative information to help us make decisions based on his expertise. During these financially turbulent times, many of us are afraid to take the risk of investing. But, by understanding Goldshalk's web-based system, our fears are diminished so that we can confidently invest in real estate again.

Do you view the drop in real estate prices over the past two years as an opportunity to invest? Surely the best time to invest is when prices are low. But how do you determine which property to buy? You don't want to end up sitting on a property that doesn't appreciate when the rest of the real estate market recovers.
Eddie Godshalk has provided a book that can help lead you to success as an investor in real estate. Godshalk argues persuasively that the biggest mistake most people make when buying real estate is basing their decision on outdated information. No one should settle for stale information in the age of the internet. Anyone with an internet connection has access to critical timely information that they need to make well informed real estate decisions.
Godshalk's book begins by taking us through the mistakes that were made that brought the real estate market to it's knees in 2008. He explains the false assumptions that many beginners and even experts have about how to make money in real estate. He then hands us the tool we need in Chapter 8 where he introduces the Home Value PredictorT. This tool allows you to create an accurate analytical system to evaluate property using timely information.
I would recommend this book to anyone that looks at this real estate market as an opportunity to invest. Let Eddie Godshalk guide you around the landmines that many beginners fall victim to when buying property. The investment in this book will pay for itself many times over when you use the tools and strategies to create wealth in the real estate market.
