Outstanding Book on Foreclosure Investing!!!

This is one of the few books I've truly appreciated from start to finish regarding the processes of Investing in Foreclosed Homes / Titles. Extremely easy to follow as the narrator has a good voice to listen to. There's MANY Audible books I've instantly regretted buying because the sample voice I was expecting was not the majority voice being used throughout the narration. Lots of authors typically spend the vast majority of time in their books discussing how they came from nothing & now have all the money in the world. In this book however, the sought after processes needed to follow a successful Foreclosure Investing business is outlined in thorough detail as well as easy to understand examples of the authors personal experiences. Alot of times he got lucky and other times he learned lessons the hard way. With SOOOO many books to choose from on the market, coupled with how little amount of time most people have to learn a new industry while staying productive in their current busy lives, I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who's looking to get into this specific field. As I navigate the world of Real Estate, this book will forever be close by to use as a reliable, organized & trustworthy source of knowledge and processes needed to be successful. The author deserves some gratification from this reader, thanking him for putting together this very well thought out book for beginners and experts wanting a well presented reference guide in the world of Foreclosed Homes.

Great book

I've bought a couple hundred homes on the steps since the late 90's, and this book definitely gives away most of our secrets.

Wow! Great read!

Great playbook for a beginner on how to go through the process of purchasing a foreclosure at an auction. Would love to see a follow up from these guys on selling/holding it and what they do after the sale.

Excellent Step by Step Guide

This book is exactly what someone needs who is wanting to buy foreclosures. Aaron and David give a clear overview followed by a solid framework for buying at auction systematically. To cap it all off, the bonus you get for finishing the book is how to do it all with other people’s money by raising private capital. The resources could be offered as an up-sell, but they provide them for free - spreadsheets, worksheets and calculators - to make sure you’re not getting in over your head. Overall, the authors turn a topic that seems very inaccessible to the average investor into a strategy just about anyone can do.
