Overview

Real estate is one of the most popular investment vehicles in America today. It's an important part of a diverse and profitable investment portfolio. For anyone who wants to get an understanding and begin investing, Trump University Real Estate 101 provides readers with the best ideas and most effective strategies for getting started. Combining the biggest name in business with the lessons of a top professor of economics, this practical guide covers the basics of real estate education.

Author Gary Eldred is a successful real estate investor, a former professor at Stanford University and the University of Illinois, and the bestselling author of such classic real estate guides as Investing in Real Estate and The Beginner's Guide to Real Estate Investing. In this comprehensive introduction to investing, he provides the kind of complete, professional-level guidance you'll find nowhere else. This reliable, real estate investing book discusses many wealth-building strategies available to investors and provides readers with an entrepreneurial framework for making money.

Beyond the basics, Eldred explains—amid all the speculation about a bursting real estate bubble—why now is still a great time to start investing. He then walks investors through the steps they need to take to get started safely and affordably. You'll find a full range of strategies and moneymaking ideas to choose from. This book will teach readers how to think like an entrepreneur, including how to use techniques to determine: the best time to buy; whether to sell, hold, or acquire more; the best neighborhood for investing; and the market niches you should specialize in—all presented in a straightforward, easy-to-apply manner.

With reliable guidance and world-class advice, this one-of-a-kind guide helps you get the most profit out of any investment. You'll learn the basics of financing, property management, and economic analysis; how to find the right property that fits your investing goal; and how to identify trends in property value, rent levels, and appreciation. Plus, you'll learn how to adapt your strategies for any market at any time.

Intended as either a standalone guide to real estate investing or as a companion for Trump University real estate courses, Trump University Real Estate 101 gives you all the information and tools you need to get started making money. Whether you want to get into the business for the long haul or find help on a one-time investment deal, this comprehensive guide explains everything you need to know to make a profit.

I bought this book thinking that it was going to give me some kind of insight into the real estate world but it turns out it's jus a disappointment. Gary Eldred promotes his "Stop Renting Now" seminars over and over again.....its as though the entire book is a promo for his other business ventures. The majority of the book tries to explain ways to increase the "pizzazz" of the property. Mainly its just a lot of fluff, nothing really substantial that would really help steer you in the right direction. Also, its worth nothing that Trump University was shut down and many complaints were brought against it. Wish I had a reviewer warn me before I bought this!
