I am so glad that I found this book. I knew that I needed help, but I had no idea I could find all the information I needed in one informative book. How To Be A Real Estate Investor by Phil Pustejovsky lays out everything abut buying, selling and investing in real estate.
My father-in-law has been talking to me and my husband about wanting to give us money from his IRA for us to purchase a second property. He wants us to get something we can rent out so we can pay of the mortgage with the renter's money and later make a profit on the rental or enjoy the second property once it's paid off.
The problem was that neither my husband or I know how to make a good investment in real estate. Neither of us have very good credit. I have been worried we would not even be able to get a mortgage to purchase another property. I was also overwhelmed by all the types of sales available, and unsure of the best option.
How to be a Real Estate Investor covers Wholesaling, Pr-Foreclosures, Short Sales, Foreclosures and Traditional Purchase. It even covers Tax Lien Certificates & Deeds and Creative Financing. Having all this knowledge before really looking into specific properties is a huge help. I feel much more confident in my abilities now, and I am really excited about the process now.
This book also covers why to be a real estate investor, how to think like a real estate investor, how to make fast cash, hot to build long term wealth and building a team. All of this information is really great. Initially, I didn't even know I wanted to learn all this, but who knows? Maybe we will really make this into something huge. It could all start on this one new property that my father-in-law got us started with.
If you have questions about real estate investing, I highly recommend checking out How To Be A Real Estate Investor and maybe even get in touch with Phil Pustejovsky. He is one of the most experienced investors alive and his story of "rags to riches" is incredible. He is now a Freedom Mentor, helping others to achieve the same amazing success that he has.
