Publisher's Summary

There's a huge problem in the commercial real estate business that nobody is talking about: due diligence. Investors are leaving big money on the table by not learning this essential principle.

Most investors, real estate brokers, and commercial real estate professionals barely scratch the surface conducting their due diligence. Mainly because, "They don't know what they don't know".

It wasn't until I became an acquisition executive that I learned some humiliating and expensive lessons because, "I didn't know what I didn't know".

This book is an easy to follow, proven, step by step system.

Having and adhering to a proven system allows you to conduct due diligence faster, easier, more efficiently, and you'll be less likely to miss something.

Here are some of the lessons you'll learn:

  • Uncovering hidden problems and issues (Sellers will not hand you a list of problems with the property. Many of these problems could make or break your investment.)
  • Critical factors to consider during your financial analysis. Included is a list of essential questions that must be addressed. (Leaving these questions unanswered can potentially devastate an investment.)
  • Not overpaying by ensuring you're getting all you deserve by being fairly credited for items on the closing statement. (This includes specific items to review and instructions to minimize your chances of being taken advantage of. You potentially lose big money by not having this information.)

These fundamentals remain the same and they are all applicable, whether it is a residential rental property, industrial, retail, or office building.

There are too many things to remember. We need to be reminded as much as we need to learn. Warren Buffet said, "Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing." Listen to this book now. It will be one of the best investments in real estate you'll ever make.

    "Essential!"

    This audiobook was so good that I bought the hard copy as well just to keep a quick reference. The author covers many details that I know to be true, but are easy to neglect because you simply don't know what you don't know. So many items in this book will help prepare any buyer for that inevitable situation when the building or fire inspectors come knocking on your door about one deficiency or another, or asking for permits which uncover the problem during a professional site review.

    Outside of the checklists common to most commercial real estate, the author goes on to itemize issues related specifically to multi-family, industrial, and retail property.

    The book is also very concise, only gold, no fluff. I cannot recommend it enough.

    "Due dil list and exhibits ?"

    Not providing a website and code for audio buyers for exhibits needs to be clearly stated. Asking us to buy physical copy after buying audio copy to get the takeaways is not what I would expect or receive from other audio authors. Great content btw.

    "Thorough Due Diligence"

    This isn't entertainment reading and you wouldn't want the narrator to read fiction. But you may put hundreds of thousands of dollars in your pocket. His thorough checklists and detailed explanations of all the items that could cost you money are invaluable. Your broker is not your friend. You need to know the status of the property you may purchase.

    "Buyer Beware"

    This book and its content are too important to be ignored. I am in the middle of buying a commercial building and negotiating leases. I am also a property manager to Federal client. Besides I am physician, needless to say analytical. If I can understand this book despite doing my day job, any body can.

    "Good tips"

    Good tips on owning large commercial properties. A little dry to read however the process is a step by step with other references.
