Publisher's Summary

It’s time to stop just thinking, talking, or dreaming about the future real estate investing can give you. It’s time to start doing...and this audiobook will show you exactly where to start.

Everyone knows real estate investing can be a powerful way to build wealth and achieve true financial freedom. But because each person’s journey is different, knowing the first steps to take can be challenging.

That’s why two of the biggest names in the real estate world teamed up to create the most comprehensive manual ever written on getting started in the lucrative business of real estate investing. Josh Dorkin and Brandon Turner - longtime hosts of the world’s number-one real estate podcast, The BiggerPockets Podcast - give you an insider’s look at the many different niches and strategies that exist. Find which one works best for you, your resources, and your goals.

Unlike most traditional real estate guides, this one won’t tell you there is “one secret path” to real estate success. Instead, it dives into dozens of unique, life-changing quests and is packed with more than 40 real-life stories of how real estate investors are finding success in today’s economy.

What’s inside:

  • How to invest in real estate while working a full-time job
  • The truth about LLCs and corporations 
  • How to earn more at work (or on the side) so you can invest more 
  • Getting your spouse on board with real estate investing
  • Eight unique property types you can invest in today 
  • Eleven powerful strategies for building wealth through real estate
  • A total of 28 tested methods for finding great real estate deals
  • Partnerships, BRRRR investing, and other creative ways to fund your deals
  • And so much more!

Terrible book - NOT RECOMMENDED

This book should be about real estate investment not abou how tips on how to get a raise, or types of business you can open to increase your income.
It’s already chapter 5 and nothing about real estate. It’s tiring and extremely boring.
Disappointed.

not what I would have expected.

I bet Bigger Pockets will be for sale within about one year from now. They have jumped the shark. The book was/is an infomercial for their website and publications. I lost count as to how many times I heard "BiggerPockets."
It's all about the money.
I have listened to every single podcast bigger pockets, and the money show has ever produced. I own every book they have written. I love Scott's book (set for life) and regularly sell it through word of mouth. This book isn't one I will recommend to anyone, ever.

Great intro to Real Estate investing!

It's a lot to take in but this book seems like a perfect introduction on how to get into Real Estate investing! I'll be listening to this at least 1 or 2 more times.

Decent read but nothing exceptional

Overall this book would be beneficial for someone with zero experience in real estate. I felt like it was too basic for someone with a little experience in real estate.

Brandon’s book is better

It was a lot of common sense. Read the book on real estate investing by Brandon turner. I wouldn’t recommend.

Wish Brandon read it!!

This book is a great listen for someone that hasn’t been following bigger pockets or listened to the podcasts.. I’d skip it if you have been listening to the podcasts. This book feels like a highlight reel of the stories that are from the podcast interviews. Brandon and josh should do a reading of it!! Overall, a great place to start but there it doesn’t dig too far below the surface.

Bazinga

This was a good beginner book on the basics of investing in Real Estate. I enjoyed it and learned a lot. This is the second book I finished by Brandon Turner. I started with "The Book on Rental Property Investing". In that one he recommended this book. A lot of the information was similar but this is the book to start with. If you are new to Real Estate this is a great starting point. I've purchased "The Book on Managing Rental Properties" as well. The narration was good. I recommended this to my father-in-law and he also enjoyed it. If you are already in the industry this may be too basic for you and you're probably better off with other options. If you are new this is good info. I preferred "The Book on Rental Property Investing" over this one.

Disclaimer: I've been listening at 2x speed for so long anything else sounds like slow motion. My enjoyment of the narrator is based on my listening speed. I only leave 5 stars for books I've listened to multiple times.

Great starter book

I loved how this book gave great direction but still let the reader chose what they want to focus on.
