Publisher's Summary

Live where you want, and invest anywhere it makes sense!

Are you interested in real estate investing but there is nothing to buy that makes sense where you live? Are you tired of seeing the amazing success of others investing in markets better suited for buy and hold real estate and wish that could be you? Do you want to take advantage of wealth building opportunities but are frustrated by the fact there just isn't any way to do that until the next market crash?

Real estate investing is one of the greatest vehicles to build wealth, but it doesn't make sense in every market. Some locations provide incredible returns, while others make it almost impossible to find a single property that profits. Traditionally, investing out of state has been considered risky and unwise.

But the rules, technology, and markets have changed: No longer are you forced to invest only in your backyard! Experienced investor and real estate agent David Greene shares his in-depth strategy to build profitable rental portfolios through buying, managing, and flipping out-of-state properties.

  • Grow your real estate investing business in any location.
  • Build relationships with your team from miles away.
  • Learn to recognize coming shifts in any market.
  • Use technology to stay informed from afar.
  • Apply checks and balances to ensure you find the best deals.
  • Understand where to buy, where to avoid, and whom to hire for work.

Don't let your location dictate your financial freedom. Get the inside scoop to invest - and succeed - anywhere!

Better than expected with real strategies

The start of the book was little slow and for beginners. Then, it gets good, started to explore the strategies he used, regarding ROE and how to do networking etc. Professionally written, it is not the kind of real estate investment book just bragging about house flipping stores.

How to get comfortable with the uncomfortable

Where does Long-Distance Real Estate Investing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Loved the book. I’ve been investing out of area, but mentally I always considered it a limitation. This book helped me realize that it doesn’t need to be a limiting factor. Embrace out of area investing and make it work for you…David’s recommendation on video has helped my investing tremendously. It also helps partners get more comfortable…another great topic was David’s discussion on Return on Equity. While I’ve always felt, this was important, I couldn’t articulate it like he does…Thanks David!!!

Great resource. Loved it.

After reading this book I feel a lot more comfortable and confident with my decision to invest in real estate out of state. This book gave me enough resources, tips, courage and excitement not only to invest out of state but also to think bigger as an investor. I am already in a process of setting up my team in one of the states and look forward to replicating it elsewhere. I also want to order a hard copy so that I can go back to the chapters I found the most useful.

Maybe valuable to newbies

This book might be good for certain audiences, I would suspect complete newbies, but most of this book is just common sense. The most important part, the financing and how to leverage equity in properties, was only very briefly touched on. The rest of it was geared towards instructing you how to use the "world wide web" to find the right people and properties. In my opinion this is a solid pass for anyone with any experience in the industry.

excellent book

This book literally blew my mind with the powerful technics the author explain in full details on how to invest in better markets rather than the one you're familiar with. I really recommend this one specially if you're new to Rei and live in an very expensive market.

one of the best beginner books I read

this was by far one of the best books I've read from beginning to end he takes you step by step he doesn't really anything out but he does leave enough out so you can do your own research I think it's one of the most complete books I've read I have read all the Rich Dad Poor Dad books and this is just one of my favorite ones I think you'll enjoy it
