Publisher's Summary

From the author of a number one best seller of commercial real estate books on Amazon, The Due Diligence Handbook for Commercial Real Estate.

Quit running your investment property under the influence of "hopeium"; that delusional state under which you believe everything will work out fine without putting forth any effort or thought into creating value with it. That's the way most investors approach their investment property.

Without a strategy for increasing value with your property's management plan is just taking the "lottery" approach.

The fundamentals remain the same for the most part, when it comes to adding value and leasing. This information can be used across the various genres of commercial real estate investments, whether it's office and industrial, retail, or multi-family residential properties. I comment from time to time throughout the book on the different angles or strategies you may want to consider for the different property types, which I have obtained from my own background and experience of 30+ years in the commercial real estate industry - or from those I know to be the best at their particular specialty.

In this audiobook you will learn:

  • How to determine the best way to price the rental rate for your investment property to get it leased at the highest value
  • How to structure your lease rate and terms to create the most value for your investment property
  • How to incentivize tenants to get your property leased in a down or over crowded market
  • Strategies and tips to create more value
  • Essential analysis forms, proposal and lease form samples, tenant application, and other forms

By learning and implementing these essential value-enhancing principles you can easily increase your property's cash flow exponentially. Every day you wait is another day of flushing more money down the drain. Buy it today and start generating more income, instead of hoping it all will work out. You will look back and consider it as one of your best real estate investments.

Exactly what I was looking for

I think this is a very detailed and informative book and instructional guide. As an experienced investor I can appreciate the clarity of information. I will now go get his other book. If it is just a good, I will then probably take his course.

Cre industry

Some very good points to keep in mind if you are in the cre industry. Lease negotiations, increasing value, cost segregation..would recommend listening to.

Concise but No Story Behind Education

The material was concise and straight forward. The book ended abruptly and I thought there could have been at last 3 hours more material to cover the topic.

Too simplistic. The insights have no depth.

I would prefer getting less bullet points with more depth. for example, by describing a case in details.

Sales pitch only

This book plugged the services of the author several times. Clearly exists only as a sales pitch and lacked any real depth of information that I could use or implement in my work. It was also wasn’t read by a professional. Lots of awkward pauses and annoying ticks.
