Chavis knows all phases and aspects of working with rental properties. In Buy It, Rent It, Profit! he explains why rental properties are such a wise investment in today's real estate world and outlines the steps and systems you need to implement to become a successful landlord and property manager. This updated edition of the modern classic includes advice on being a profitable and professional landlord, protecting your investment, learning what types of property you should be purchasing, and adapting to the ever-changing world of technology in real estate.

Not enough substance

The author spends half the book trying to sell you the book purchase you already made. Once he's done with telling you how great his systems are he only goes into the basic concepts such as, buy properties in area that have high tenant demand, but does not provide information on how to determine high demand areas. He does not explain how he was able to start with a hundred dollars in his pocket and start purchasing properties or how he continued to leverage his funds.

I would have loved to know if he did cash out refinances to purchase new properties our if he sold them, etc.

Overall I heard more about visiting his website than anything else.

Excellent source for info

I'm barely looking into getting in the rental business and this book gives a very good detailed description of what you will encounter. Also, downloadable workbook is available and other websites as resources. Highly recommend.

If you want to be a landlord, get this book.

This book is packed with easy to understand practical ways to becoming a landlord. Brian has done an excellent job explaining systems and tools that he uses to be successful. The bonus PDF is very helpful and makes the concepts easier to understand. Great job!
