Investing in real-estate is a business. So I don't understand the numerous
real-estate guru's selling books on Amazon.

Maybe someone can clue me in into why any investor who I assume has
built a multi-million dollar portfolio, would share knowledge for only
$15.99 on Amazon. Some books cost more, but this seems to be
the average price.

If these investors have developed strategies that has earned them a
competitive advantage, what's to be gained when they share their
knowledge? How is that good business sense?

Are they not divulging strategies with the competition?

Reading a book on cooking doesn't make you a great chef.
They make more from selling the book than they lose giving out generic tips.

There are no shortcuts. It's my full time job, I know.

They write out the process and profit.
100k books×$10

Half are selling OPM scam plans anyway

You don't have to be a genius to buy and sell real estate-I was a broker for 30 plus years. Unfortunately realtors build themselves up as real pros. Such a joke. These books are scams. I taught real estate classes. I could tell you just about everything you really need to know in 30 minutes or less if you have average intelligence.

That is the worst investing advice I have heard yet.

Correction..any idiot can become a realtor and broker


There is nothing easy about securing 250k cash loans, catching all issues, and completing the project before holding costs and greedy realtor commissions eat you up.

Because there is money to be made selling dreams to suckers. Real estate seems to attract a lot of suckers looking to gey rich quick.

I'm filthy rich, and have 4 supermodel girlfriends on my yacht.

It's not that hard.

For a small, but recurring payment of $7.99 forever, I can share how you can too

I can give you some advice if you have any questions, most people can't figure out how to even get on the board with financing for the initial investment, snd there are a few opm tricks if you don't have huge cash or credit.

To be successful in real estate and property management, you have to have a pair and be ruthless as a killer. It you have those talents naturally, you "don't need no stinkin' (real estate) badges. If you don't you surely need a strong stomach and no morals.

Not really with flipping, you don't even need face time with your buyers or sellers. What you do need is cash, and lots of it to get to a profitable level beyond the tax and maintainance liability you take on putting the title in your name.
I'm on a 3 week vacay right now, while my agent shows the property. I just need to counter offers via agent.

Property management, I agree, people hate paying bills.

You must be a genius and so proud of yourself. Keep living that good life and success you so loudly boast about. We're all so jealous.

I appreciate the responses. I do find it interesting the least
sold books on Amazon is investing in rental properties
using Section 8 tenants. If cash flow is so important,
I'd think 70 to 80% guaranteed rental income would
inspire more books on the subject.

This comes to mind from my experience growing up in
south philly. To the best of my memory, almost my
entire neighborhood was on some form of section 8
voucher program.

I have a strong suspicion those property owners never
tried to sell real estate books.
