This is for big investments.

If you're only wanting to start small with a rental house or 2, this book is overkill. If you're going big for apt complexes and having partners etc, it's all you.

Very useful and practical.

The title fits the book perfectly. This is a great foundation for someone wanting to start investing in multifamily. Its like a multi unit investing 101 class.

Great for Apartment Investing

Fantastic book with several practical steps to run your own apartment bldgs. You probably couldn't go buy an apartment immediately after reading this but you will be miles ahead of someone who has not been educated in this way. Two thumbs up!

Not bad at all

it basically does a great job detailing a sure way to make money from buying multiple rental units. I was expecting more in the buying and selling and or single unit rentals

Good but not what I was expecting

Would you try another book from Ken McElroy and/or Garrett Sutton?

Probably, but after doing some research myself

Would you recommend Rich Dad Advisors: ABCs of Real Estate Investing to your friends? Why or why not?

No because this book is not for everyone. The title is misleading. It's supposed to teach other people how to invest in real estate, but all the stories in the book focus on how to invest in Apartment Real Estate properties, which costs millions of dollars, not something an average Joe can start investing on.

Was Rich Dad Advisors: ABCs of Real Estate Investing worth the listening time?

No

Any additional comments?

Title is misleading. Should have read the reviews first.

Great book

I loved this book. I will definitely be using it repeatedly to reference it when buying properties. I didn't care for the reading style of the person reading it though but that's just personal preference. I have listened to a few of the rich dad books and I liked the guy who did rich dad poor dad and cashflow quadrant better.

Not bad, but short. Brief overview of the process.

Not a lot of good details. More of a general overview of how to buy commercial real-estate. The chapter on investigating the area is pretty good, but the rest is vague. I guess you can't expect a lot of detail from a 5 hour book .if you're just starting off i highly recommend 'the book on rental real estate' from bigger pockets. Way more information.

Would you try another book from Ken McElroy and/or Garrett Sutton?

sales less inform more.

while I find that he gives plenty of information in the book he also spends what i feel is more time on selling you the book. however I still believe the book to be valuable for the information he does give in the book.

Not the ABC's I was expecting

I think this book is more directed towards those that want to buy apartment buildings and not houses.
Because the title states "ABC's" I was expecting more for the entry level or beginner real estate investor.
I felt the reader was a little to excitable and didn't really suit this book.

Great content and very inspiring.

The style of the presenter was not great. Too sing-song and the chapters tend to concatenate.
