Praise for The SmartMoney Guide to Real Estate Investing
"Gerri Willis's SmartMoney Guide to Real Estate Investing is wonderful. It's easy to read and easy to use. In a matter of minutes after reading this book, I was able to make a decision on a piece of real estate I own that will potentially put tens of thousands of dollars in my pocket in the next ninety days. I'd say this book can pay for itself a thousands times over on your next real estate transaction."
-David Bach, bestselling author of Smart Couples Finish Rich and Smart Women Finish Rich
"Leave it to Gerri Willis to leave me angry! Had I taken heed of her advice on negotiating price and understanding how agents 'really' work, I'm sure I could have saved thousands, probably tens of thousands of dollars on my last house! Great book. Gerri hits a 'home' run!"
-Neil Cavuto, Vice President, Anchor, and Managing Editor, Business News, Fox News Channel
"An authoritative, informative, compelling case for real estate investment from a widely respected expert, Gerri Willis, who, most appropriately, thoroughly examines this issue from the individual investor's point of view."
