Investing in real estate has changed millions of people’s lives; and not just high-rollers or people with money to burn. I’m talking about everyday people – some of whom didn’t have two dimes to rub together when they started. This book details the success stories of those people. Men and women who combined common sense with solid real estate investing principles to make better lives for themselves and the people they love.
The real estate transactions described here are deals almost anyone can make happen. You don’t have to be rich, hold a specialized college degree, real estate license, have years of experience or lots of spare time.
