    Absolutely DYNAMITE!!!

    Buy It! Read It! Keep It! That is my advice to anyone who thinks that they might ever be interested in buying a piece of property. Steven Fisher¿s book ¿The Real Estate Investor's Handbook: The Complete Guide for the Individual Investor¿ is an excellent guide to show you the way through the maze. I think that this is a must have for someone that only plans to buy one property or for the next ¿Donald Trump¿ wannabe. Steven has covered a great amount of material in this book that is absolutely dynamite. I recommend this book to one and all.

    A must-read for anyone interested in real estate investing

    The Real Estate Investors Handbook is an excellent tool for anyone interested in a career, or even a part-time venture, as a real estate investor. But, perhaps even better, this handbook isn¿t aimed only at newcomers it¿s also chock full of valuable information for experienced real estate investors. In addition to an extensive glossary, there are sample letters for landlords to use with problem tenants, case studies from seasoned real estate investors, and charts for evaluating potential investment properties. The Real Estate Investors Handbook focuses on both residential and commercial properties, which gave me great insight and sparked an interest in the commercial side of real estate investment, something I¿d not considered before. The most helpful aspects of the book were definitely the sections on being a landlord (including great questions to ask to make sure being a landlord is right for you) and how to find and evaluate investment property. Other topics covered in-depth are flipping property, finding a quality team to work with, and negotiating. Essentially, the book covers everything you could want and need to know about real estate investing. If you¿re looking for a complete book on real estate investing, I highly recommend The Real Estate Investors Handbook. It provides solid information backed by examples from highly successful real estate investors. It¿s comprehensive, easy-to-understand, and ultimately a valuable read with tons of advice that certainly has me more confident about starting a career in real estate investment. Definitely gets five stars from me!

    Everything You Want to Know About Real Estate

    This book is for all real estate investors, from the novice investor to real estate veterans. Unlike other books in the genre, this book uses actual case studies to substantiate the research presented. This provides the reader with clear examples and evidence of past success. The book also contains a chapter on negotiating for a property. I found this section particularly helpful because I, like many people, am intimidated and ensure when trying to negotiate a deal. This chapter gave me definite ideas and examples I will use when I next try to negotiate a deal. Another unique feature of this book is the section dedicated to landlords. This section clearly outlines the rights and responsibilities of a landlord, how to attract and keep good tenants, and how to protect your investments. This section also includes sample forms typically used by landlords, including a holiday letter, a maintenance guarantee, and reasons for eviction form. This book is a good reference for those interested in the real estate market. I would highly recommend this book as a resource for anyone interested in investing in real estate.

    Clear, Concise and Comprehensive -- A Must Have

    Whenever I have thought about investing in real estate, I always dismissed it as a ¿no, that¿s not for me.¿ I had seen the various folks on TV saying `buy my papers so you can learn the tricks to purchasing homes for pennies on the dollar with no money down¿ but I never felt like I could spend the money on their product. Then, after searching through this book by way of the Search Inside and reading a page here and there, I knew I had to purchase it. The information it contained was worth much more than the cost I paid to purchase it. The book spends a lot of time on understanding the various financial nuances of purchasing real estate. It has various worksheets throughout it to help even the most mathematically challenged person (like me) understand some very complex concepts like interest, mortgage payments, returns on investment and even landlord/tenant agreements. Further, the book offers a basic business plan and guidelines for setting up your own operation. The book is full of information and offers an accessible look at the world of real estate investment. It acknowledges that the complexity of real estate while keeping the text easy-to-understand and interesting. The step-by-step approach the book takes makes it an excellent resource for an investment beginner like me. I¿m sure that a more seasoned investor would also find useful information in the book as well. I¿m confident the small investment price I paid for the book will multiply exponentially as I put the information into action and state my own investment program.
