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.
"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.
"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 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
"Useless unless u are buying 100 apt in Portland"
everything was was focused on massive 100 + doors
not much info on doing duplex or quadlex
"Good but not what I was expecting"
Probably, but after doing some research myself
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.
Title is misleading. Should have read the reviews first.
"Ken hits it home."
Ken does a fabulous job. big or small investors or managers will love the detail he covers in this book. it's quick, it's fast and you don't want to miss this read. it will prepare you to accelerate your journey.
"good read and sound navigation. I would recommend."
this is a good book with sound advice to get you going in the right direction.
"I need to read this five more times!"
This book is brilliant. The practical information and application there of is exactly what I was looking for concerning how to properly manage investment real estate. The way Mr. McElroy breaks down processes and provides Real world scenarios was a huge help. His strong emphasis on doing right by your tenants, having integrity and following your management rules to a T where some of the best parts of the book. If you're even considering investing in real estate you need to read this book.
Very general. Better suited for those in small markets. Minimal tax discussion
Felt more like a pep talk then anything else
