Summary:
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

I had always wondered how to analyze a real estate investment. I think this book helped me learn how to do that. I enjoyed the chapters in the second part of the book with a separate chapter for each calculation. Its hard for me to remember what some calculations mean but, I will keep trying to learn. I enjoyed reading this book.

Excellent resource

After reading this book you will probably know more about the math behind investment real estate than most brokers. Good luck

Good book for those interested in investing in the real estate industry.

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

Comprehensive overview of the figures one can use for deal analysis, as well as others that buyers/sellers and loan providers might take into consideration. Each section went over the calculation, as well as examples of how they might play out in certain scenarios. Somewhat on the dryer side, but useful information to lean into data-driven decision-making as opposed to impulsive or wishy-washy impressions to evaluate potential deals.

This book was consistently in the “must read” category for real estate investors and unfortunately for me I wasn’t ready for it. It was over my head. I will reference it as needed for all of the calculations it offers and tax insights (If I don’t just google it) but not much is sticking in the brain from this book.

best book I have read so far on how to anaylze properties as a real estate investor. This is a must read. I am glad I did not read this book first because I think I would have been to overwhelmed. Very thankful for this book and for Frank Gallinelli. ...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.

Great refresher for people familiar with financial analysis and amazing for first time readers

Easy read, straight to the point! Author does a great job explaining the concepts and backing it up with examples and exercises for you to try. Must read book!

An excellent book on real estate investing - I thought I had a decent understanding of these financial measures, but this book (and particularly the first half of it) really helped me to grok them in a way I hadn't before. ...more

If your serious about rental real estate you have to know the points laid out in this book. Otherwise you’re playing games with your investments.

Just a solid well written book about the financial measure of real estate cash flow (with a tinge if humor). This book provides exactly what the title describes. A staple for real estate investors.
