Real Estate Investing Made Simple: A Commonsense Approach to Building Wealth

M. Anthony Carr, Author AMACOM/American Management Association $17.95 (296p) ISBN 978-0-8144-7246-0
Opening with a chapter titled""How to Make 500 to 1,000 Percent on Your Money,"" this book offers a compelling argument that real estate is an auspicious way to invest. Carr warns readers, however, that""what they won't find here are unbelievable claims of overnight successes that will load up their bank accounts in just a few weeks."" Rather, he provides a practical, step-by-step explanation of how the real estate market works, how to develop an understanding of it, who the key players are, what various loan programs offer, how to negotiate and how to avoid problems with renters. A former real estate editor for The Washington Times, Carr includes plenty of details about the basics--enough for novices--without being patronizing, and hits upon seemingly complicated topics like foreclosures and tax liens with accessible language and concise arrangement, including bullet points and sections that make dense text nicely readable.
