This is likely the best real estate book that I have come across. Many of the other books talk about the soft-skills or general tips to keep in mind, but this book provided me with the confidence to start actively analyzing deals by providing me with the calculations (and their uses, strengths, and weaknesses) for acquiring deals. Some key, consolidated themes include:

- Information is a valuable commodity, so you shouldn't expect that it'll simply fall into your lap without some effort ...more

The book opens by presenting a fairly comprehensive framework for measuring real estate returns as coming from one of four mechanisms: cash flow, appreciation, loan amortization, and a tax shelter. Then it goes through and describes each of these one by one, including metrics fo ...more

I found this to be an good reference for commonly used real estate definitions and concepts. There were some terms I had come across for a while now, and was not entirely sure what they meant or fully entailed. This book filled a lot of knowledge gaps.

Unfortunately, though, it is very technical and frankly, boring. There are many examples used to illustrate the terms and concepts, usually involving math and sometimes complex equations. These were, for me, incomprehensible and not worth my time ...more

Despite the terrible shouting cover, this is an incredibly useful resource if you intend to get some basics in real estate math.

Frank lays out examples for each calculation, including the sub-calculations that make up larger formulas. This helps ...more

Plenty of ratios and examples for investing in different properties (a single appartment, an entire building, etc). It also gives you access to a web page where you can analyze cash flows, depreciation, etc.

I recommend to use this book and at the same time use excel to plot all the formulas and construct a personal template to use it to analyze future deals. In this case, it will take more time to read it, but the understa ...more

I can’t rate this book because I didn’t understand 70%. I read it for my husband because he wanted me to be knowledgeable in our investing in rental properties but I have a headache instead. Too much math for a die hard language arts fan 😂😂😂. But very thorough and organized. I’m sure it will help those of you that actually care about this subject.
