Terrible

Sounds like it was translated into Hungarian and back before being narrated. I am very interested in this topic but the format this audio book makes it nearly impossible to understand.

Probably a good book, but a terrible narration

I'm not sure if there was some jumbling of the text in formatting it for the narrator to read (perhaps there were picture captions or sidebar text that got scrambled in with the main text), but many passages of this are simply incoherent gibberish. It's almost like chunks of totally unrelated sentences got merged together at times.

What currency is he referring to

The audible version does not state the currency...is it US dollars? Is it British pounds? The book cover does not state it either

Content doesn’t lend itself to audiobook narration

I’m not sure what the issue is with this audiobook, but I found it very difficult to follow, almost as if it was translated from another language or if the reader simply read through billeted lists or other content which doesn’t lend itself to audiobook narration. I’m very interested in the topic, but found the audiobook essentially unlistenable and, therefore, uninformative.

Exceptional book!!

If you're a real estate investor you should listen this and then keep it in your car. It's proved very helpful while I'm on site trying to estimate rehab costs.

Insightful book!!

So far very informative. This book won't tell you exactly what rehabs will cost. Rather it will give you the skeleton or nuts and bolts required to properly estimate your rehabs.

Good Recourse!!

Great book. I've been involved in real estate and custom home building for over thirty years and I still found a lot of useful information. Estimating the costs of rehabbing a home is an art that is developed through experience.

Rehabilitation costs is one major variable. Locations and market comes before. I need to learn that as well. Back to more listening

Perfect Book!!

It is a great book for someone who doesn't understand construction nuances and doesn't know where to start and what to look for in the rehab.
