Publisher's Summary

I wrote this introductory book based upon my real life experiences as a Cleveland real estate investor and flipper. I’ve been doing this since 2004 and have over 350 properties I did to this day. 

There is nothing special about me or my real estate books, I just tell the truth - that’s my sales pitch. The truth is, this business is not for the light of heart. You need to be a very serious, fully committed person of strong mental fortitude to succeed in real estate cash flow or flipping, especially flipping. There are a lot of horrors that come with real estate wealth; the ones that can see through it can get really rich, sometimes fast. 

  1. Can you see past nightmare tenants? They can trash your apartment, bring bedbugs in, sue you, set up a meth lab, turn your driveway into a car washing lane! 
  2. Can you see through a trashed house to the finished product – knowing you have big money on the line? What about finding a buyer, what if the market changes? Appraisal? Financing?
  3. You think dealing with contractors is easy – do you really think they will respect you? HA! They won’t even show up for the first day of work.
  4. How about city inspectors... They love landlords!
  5. Professional property management companies are going to run the show for you, you can trust them. NO WAY! In fact, in my book, a professional management firm is guilty before proven innocent. 

What experience do I have?

  • Section 8 Income Expert (So simple and routine, so little competition) 
  • Low Income Rentals ( The easiest money ever, if you know what you are doing) 
  • New construction foreclosure properties (My last deal was only $25,000. That previously sold for $150,000... Yes, this was in 2017.)
  • Hundreds of foreclosures and REO’s bought
  • Mining for deals using direct mail and Google Adwords (Yes, direct mail still works and very well)
  • Attracting cash investors through strategic channels

WORTH EVERY STAR!!!

At first I thought it will be tricky to learn this book because I'm going to start as a complete beginner and I was fortunate enough to find a guidebook in rental properties that is good for beginner like myself. You'll see the do's and don'ts in rental property business after you listen this book. I have learned a lot from this book in a small amount of time.

Best guidebook

In addition, he tells you what you need to start investing as soon as you can. Honestly, it's a great jumping-off point for someone who knows next to nothing about investing although once you know the basics, you'll definitely want to seek out additional books to expand your knowledge in more detail.

Best book

I thought this book was well thought out. Perfect for someone looking to get into the real estate game. I personally am not. I would definitely recommend to someone who is though. I like how it gives a warning that it's hard work in the beginning too.

A must-read for beginners

The book was a quick and enjoyable listen that used incredibly descriptive language to explain otherwise complex steps to real estate investing. I found it incredibly helpful! I would recommend to both beginners who're just starting out AND the already experienced who'd just like to brush up on information. This book had lots of great advice.
