    Interested in Real Estate Investing?

    If I were still working, I would be reading Turnkey Investing with Lease-Options as I would an excellent novel! Indeed, I was not only impressed with this book I was amazed! The main reason for my careful review of this book was that I read it wearing two former hats. One was as the experienced lease manager for a land-grant university but, more importantly, the other as a young single professional woman who had entered into a lease-purchase arrangement when I decided to buy a condo many years ago. Even though I was already managing leased space for the university, when I decided to purchase a condo, I was not prepared for the trauma of having to face a major financial burden with no support. My mother was living with me at the time, but I knew the little money she provided would not continue through the life of the mortgage. Additionally, although I had been promoted on an ongoing basis, and expected another promotion in the near future, I had no savings or verification that I would be able to meet mortgage payments. Fortunately, my landlord wanted to get the last unit sold in this complex and offered to allow all rent payments to go toward an ultimate down payment on the actual purchase price. If you are in a similar situation¿buy this book. It is not necessarily intended for the potential new property owner however, it provides a lot of essential information you need to know as you consider this option. For instance, for years, I sat in my new condo with nothing on my walls, no pictures, and no decorations¿because my landlord had told me this wasn¿t permitted. Such a little thing, but I grew to hate those bare walls and, finally, even though feeling guilty, pounded the first nail toward making that house a home! With this book, I would have been in a position to question and negotiate what I could have done in this place I intended to make my long-term home! Indeed, the acquisition of a home via lease option is based upon accepting a home, essentially as-is with the ability to improve and upgrade the building as if it were already owned. At the same time, even though this book is written for a specific geographical area, the philosophy, the management direction, and the presentation itself all provide an excellent learning tool for an individual who has been given any type of property management responsibility, no matter where that property is located. In addition to thoroughly describing lease-options, the book covers how to research the market, purchasing, preparing, marketing and finding the right tenants. The excellent ideas used herein can be easily translated for use in any type of real estate transactions. And, finally, if I were a potential real estate investor, not having already committed to my retirement plan, I would be in contact with Mr. Chan immediately! Why? This book shows exactly what I as an investor need to know to make the decision to consider real estate as an investment. And, what¿s more, he proves his claims with sufficient facts and figures that you can believe. That¿s a major accomplishment for those who are reticent to invest in anything that has some risk. Mr. Chan¿s book is perhaps one of the best written books of its type. Using the traditional training method, he first gives an outline of what he is going to explain and teach and then he repeats each item, both times providing specific details, but also anticipating any questions that might evolve based upon his presentation. You can tell immediately that the author speaks with authority, based upon knowledge and experience, readily confessing to trial-and-error issues. Mr. Chan opens his book with recommendations from those who are involved in considering investment options. By the time you finish the book, you will have gained a certain trust for the company and its team. However, assuming you are not in a position to invest directly with TurnKey Investing, this book provides sufficient details for you

    Stop renting and start lease-optioning!

    Matthew Chan has given us a complete soup-to-nuts blueprint for turning your single family home rental business into a hands-off landlord-free lease-option money machine. This book truly gives you EVERYTHING you need to find, market, systematize, and make huge cashflow and back-end profits with lease-optioning. Get cash down 'option' money upfront from your tenant buyers. Automate your systems and paperwork. Learn how to advertise for tenant-buyers. It's all here. I wish I had this book when I started investing in real estate.
