I started to listen to this book on Audible but quickly realized that I just have to have a hard copy
of it. It is loaded with practical detail, definitions, strategies, advice, and real life examples that
it's almost like a textbook on raising private capital in real estate, and, being a visual person, I
learn better from a hard copy of a textbook rather than an audio version.
Matt's book is especially excellent for those who are just beginning in real estate, as well as
those who have wet their feet a little but want to dive deeper into the waves. It contains basics,
such as descriptions of real estate debt and equity, but also goes into details, such as how to
structure private money deals and strategies how to approach cash providers. Matt is brutally
honest and open: he doesn't keep secrets from his audience and shares his tips and examples
from his own practice that can help other investors be successful.
Matt is an seasoned real estate investor whose experience you can trust. So many investors
share their success stories, write books, do podcasts and videos but they are yet to survive a
housing crush! So many of them started post-2008 downtown and have been swimming in the
calm waters of the booming real estate. Not Matt. He started before the market crushed and in
his book shares his experience with having to convert his short-term flips to rentals just to break
even. This is an invaluable experience that makes a real estate investor a legitimate one.
I highly recommend this book to others interested in the topic. I also recommend Matt's videos (I
found them on Youtube) and podcasts on Biggerpockets. I bet you will find his humorous
style, wisdom and honesty to be the perfect compliments of the “bigger individual” he talks
about in his book!
